3 Types of Blindness
In today’s gospel we hear of the miraculous cure of the man born blind. Jesus uses to story to point out that there are ways much more serious than physical blindness that affect all of us. The first is a moral blindness caused by sin. It is hard to see the right way to go when stuck in the darkness of sin. Second is an intellectual blindness. Are we blind to the truths of our faith? How well do we really know Jesus? Finally there is a kind of blindness of charity wherein we are blind to Jesus Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need. We pray that this Lent will be a time of purification and enlightenment in which we find ourselves prepared for the coming of the light of the world at Easter.
