“As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. Jesus spat on the ground, made mud with his saliva, and smeared the man’s eyes with the mud. Then he told him, ‘Go, wash in the pool of Siloam.’ . . . So the man went off and washed, and came back able to see.”
Come before God as the person you are with some area of blindness, i.e. in how you view the homeless, the incarcerated, the poor, those of a different color, those with accents, those with disabilities.
Humbly receive God’s grace and acknowledge that area of blindness in yourself.
Move out from your prayer gently, confident that God will be helping you overcome your blindness.
Heritage word—“Never fear to undertake something difficult for God. We see only the beginnings of things, and the headaches, but God sees the finished work.”
(Mother Mary Cecilia, 3rd Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
