Wednesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time

Gen 8:6-13, 20-22; Mk 8:22-26

After Noah saw that the flood was receding, he could have sang “To you, Lord, I will offer a sacrifice of praise (Resp. Psalm). In today’s Gospel, Jesus cures a blind man who gradually regains his sight, which allows him to return home. We take in many images each day, but what do we really see? The glass half empty, or half full? Evil situations and bad things exist. But so does beauty, people helping one another, forgiveness given and pardon granted. What do you perceive? Seeing is such a privilege. Use your eyes to see God’s wonderful presence at work.
