In today’s Gospel Jesus cures a man who was blind from birth. As well as physical blindness there are also other forms of blindness.
We all have some blind spots:
There are things others can see about us that we cannot see about ourselves.
It is a loving thing to do when we lovingly point out to someone these types of blind spots. Once they become aware they may wish to do something about it.
Our upbringing, our cultural conditioning or some experiences can also contribute to an inability of seeing things about ourselves or others objectively.
We can also be in denial about our own shadows or even sins.
Jesus enabled the man born blind to physically see again.
He can also help liberate us and enable us to see.
Lent is a special time focused on relationships. It is a time of reflection on all of our relationships.
Lord help me to see!
