The Lord is my light and my salvation.-- Psalm 27:1
Mass readings: Isaiah 29:17-24 / Matthew 9:27-31
Anne Mansfield Sullivan became famous because of her work with Helen Keller, who had become blind, deaf, and mute as the result of a childhood disease. She couldn't cure Helen physically but she taught her to ''see'' and ''hear'' in other ways and, eventually, Helen graduated from Radcliffe College.
Jesus had confidence in the blind men because of their faith, and He cured them. Many of us can physically see, but we are ''blind'' in ways possibly we don't comprehend -- blind to our own arrogance or to the poverty of others, for example. Advent calls us in our preparation for Jesus' arrival to open ourselves to possibilities around us by exercising our faith. Let's not live in the darkness of ignorance, but the light of faith, today and each day of our lives.
Prayer: Lord, open my eyes to the reality of our world.
