In today's Gospel, the healing of a man born blind calls us to focus on the physical and spiritual aspects of sight and light. In the first part of today's Gospel Jesus responds to a widespread belief of his time that misfortune and disability were the result of sin. Jesus is asked the question whose sin caused the man's blindness—his own or his parents'? Jesus indirectly gives the question an entirely different dimension—through this man's disability, God's power will become apparent. Jesus then heals the man.
The healing is contentious because Jesus heals on the Sabbath. The religious authorities said the Mosaic Law prohibited work (including healing) on the Sabbath. The Pharisees also have trouble believing that Jesus performed a miracle. The man challenges the authorities about their assessment of the good that Jesus has done. In turn, they expel him for questioning their judgment.
Attention Men! The Men’s Fellowship, at Resurrection Parish, invites all men of the parish to our bi-monthly meetings on the first and third Wednesday of the month starting at 7:30pm in the Resource Room.
