Healing our blindness…
February 15, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
Jesus healed many blind people during his public ministry. Today we hear of one such healing…
When Jesus and his disciples arrived at Bethsaida, people brought to him a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. Putting spittle on his eyes he laid his hands on the man and asked, “Do you see anything?” Looking up the man replied, “I see people looking like trees and walking.” Then he laid hands on the man’s eyes a second time and he saw clearly; his sight was restored and he could see everything distinctly. Then he sent him home and said, “Do not even go into the village.” (Mark 8:22-26)
Jesus worked hard to restore the sight of this poor man. It took effort. Being able to see is so very important! I feel that it was significant that it took two tries to actually correct all his vision.
On a spiritual level, we also need to be able to see properly. The eyes of our hearts are so important. If we a blind to the truth, to good and evil, to love and honor, we are the most to be pitied. Jesus came to restore our spiritual sight, even more than our physical sight. And his whole public ministry was an arduous process of restoring humanities spiritual eyes, eyes that see the good and love it, eyes that see God’s mercy and accept it. Without the eyes of our hearts, we are blind to salvation. Our Lady told us so:

“Dear children, I, the mother of all of you gathered here and the mother of the entire world, am blessing you with a motherly blessing and call you to set out on the way of humility. That way leads to the coming to know the love of my Son.
My Son is almighty, He is in everything. If you, my children, do not become cognizant of this, then darkness/blindness rule in your soul.
Only humility can heal you.
My children, I always lived humbly, courageously and in hope. I knew, I became cognizant that God is in us and we are in God. I am asking the same of you.
I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me.
I will help you on your way. My love will envelop you like a mantle and make of you apostles of my light – of God’s light.
With the love that comes forth from humility you will bring light to where darkness/blindness rule. You will be bringing my Son who is the light of the world.
I am always alongside your shepherds and I pray that they may always be an example of humility for you… Thank you.”
We must allow Jesus to heal the darkness/blindness in our hearts, so that we can be saved, and help others to also escape that darkness/blindness to!!
Let us pray, pray, pray!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
