Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 24 October 2021
Jeremiah 31:7-9. Psalm 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6. Hebrews 5:1-6. Mark 10:46-52.
Enlightened Sight. The blind man will not be silenced today. Insistently he calls on Jesus by name. He asks for pity; he asks for sight. Jesus makes it happen. Instead of returning home to a renewed life, he throws off his cloak and jumps into action and follows. Even when sightless, he saw with eyes of faith. Because of this encounter with Jesus, his insight is richer.
- What do I need to beg of Jesus? For myself? For someone else?
- How can I keep listening for Jesus already active in my life? In the lives of others?
- What “cloak” that holds me back will I throw off to follow Jesus?
