Come and See

Fourth Sunday in Lent

The gospel for this Sunday is the story of the man born blind healed by Christ. "I was blind, now I see," declares the man.

But what an uproar this causes. There follows a long inquisition about his identity, who was involved, the testimony of the townspeople, the blind man's parents, and the reaction of the Pharisees. Jesus is accused of breaking the Sabbath and no one seems to appreciate the miracle itself. Why so much consternation?!

Seems like a time to remember the prophet Jeremiah's words:

"Hear this, O foolish and and senseless people,

who have eyes but do not see,

who have ears, but do not hear." -Jeremiah 5:21

Come Sunday, maybe we'll see clearer.
