Trust in Jesus is essential for Christians. It’s knowing that Jesus will do for us what we need so we can know and follow him. Today’s gospel about the blind man of Jericho reminds us that faith heals us. Imagine how overwhelmed the poor man was, first hearing it was Jesus he reacted because he knew Jesus could help. His insistence and his shouting, convinces Jesus he’s sincere. His simple request: “please Lord, let me see” is all Jesus needs. The man’s response: follow Jesus and joyfully tell everyone what the Lord has done for him.
When we ask Jesus for a gift, do we feel he’s answered us? Does any revelation cause us to joyfully follow and point him out to others?
“Bridegroom and Lord, the
longed-for hour has come!
—Teresa of Avila
