Go out to all the world and tell the Good News. — Mark 16:15
Mass readings: Acts 9:1-20 / John 6:52-59
I had cataract surgery recently. Driving at night I couldn’t see pedestrians or bikers until they were alarmingly close to me. During Mass I couldn’t see the face of the priest at the altar. During a soccer game I missed my son’s four goals because they were shot on the other end of the field. The surgery made an immediate difference. Colors were richer. Faces were distinct. The world was changed for the better. I was grateful to God.
Today’s reading recounts the dramatic conversion of Paul, who was temporarily blinded. He was baptized as soon as he regained his sight. God gives the gift of sight and the gift of eternal life. Like Paul, let’s remove the scales from our eyes that block our sight of God.
Prayer: Lord, forgive me for the times I lose sight of my purpose in life and lose my way to You.
