Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s readings we see God’s saving power in the life of a nation and in the life of an individual in need of healing. 

Jesus lived and preached what he knew - that He was beloved - the servant of the Lord who came to open the eyes of the blind.  He invites Bartimaeus to come to him.  Then he asks: “What do you want me to do for you?  Bartimaeus aware of his poverty and disability asks that he may see.  Jesus knows that this blind man already has the eyes of faith.  So, he tells Bartimaeus that it is his faith that now restores his physical sight.  No longer confined in his blindness, Bartimaeus can now go wherever he wants to go.  His choice is to follow Jesus on his way to Jerusalem, the city of passion, death, and resurrection. 

We are saved in community as the people of God, the Body of Christ.  We are, also, cared for as beloved sons and daughters.  How have you experienced Jesus’ healing power in your life? 

If Jesus stood in front of you today and asked, “What do want me to do for you?”  How would you respond? 

Thanks to all who prepared for and attended the Chili Fest/Trunk or Treat.   

Have a blessed week!  Fr. Len
