Readings: 1Sam 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a. Eph 5:8-14. Jn 9:1-41
Each one of us possesses some level of blindness in different aspects of our lives. They appear as blind spots, weaknesses, ignorance, biases, prejudices, deep-seated self-doubt, irrational fears, etc. We strive to shine light onto these or progressively immerse ourselves into greater concentrations of light. We seek healing for our blindness. True deliverance comes through immersion into Light.
Surprisingly, there are people who become uncomfortable when others seem to improve their sight or their vision. They forget that this is better for humanity as a whole. The better individual vision gets, the more enlightened individuals become, the better for the collective whole. Society’s healing is an aggregate of individual healings. And as society stands today, we surely need as much light as we can get. Jesus Christ is the True Light, the one who’s truly capable of healing society’s blindness.
May Jesus Christ, the True Light, heal our blindness.
