DG BookGospel: Lk 18:35-43
When Jesus drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the road, begging. As he heard the crowd passing by, he
inquired what it was, and they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was going by. Then he cried out, “Jesus, Son of David,


have mercy on me!” The people in front scolded him, “Be quiet!” but he cried out all the more, “Jesus, Son of David, have
mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and ordered the blind man to be brought to him, and when he came near, he asked him, “What do you
want me to do for you?” And the man said, “Lord, that I may see!” Jesus said, “Receive your sight, your faith has saved you.” At once the
blind man was able to see, and he followed Jesus, giving praise to God. And all the people who were there also praised God.

 

Reflection

Prayer can bring a lot of relief and comfort.
We usually resort to prayer when things are bigger
than our capacity to face them. But sometimes, it
can also be discouraging. What more can be said
when we couldn’t even pray because people
make it impossible for us to do so? Take for example
the blind man in today’s Gospel reading. The crowd
is the barrier to his prayer. Instead of helping him cry
out to Jesus, they seek to silence him. “Be quite,” they
warn him. It is not enough that he is already blind;
they also try to make him mute. How could people
be so unfeeling sometimes? Worse, they even want
Jesus to play deaf! Despite these formidable obstacles,
the blind man perseveres. He got what he wants.
Jesus cures him without hesitation. God eventually
hears the prayer of a person who perseveres.
