The Man Born Blind, is the story of a simple man open to God’s presence and arrogant men who cannot see the Christ standing right before them.
A tragedy greater than all others is to be blind and say that we can see. There are so many areas where we are perilously blind to the ways in which our actions, words, thoughts and desires have jeopardized our eternal salvation.
The more we do not admit our blindness the more hardened our blindness becomes.
Little has changed in the world. You go to work, to school, and the so-called intellectuals belittle you because you are a person of faith. We cannot allow others to put us down for our faith. We know what matters in life. We are reminded of the saying “seeing is believing.” In the case of God, not seeing but believing is what is important. That is faith.
