    From ! Pa"orIn a previous parish that I was assigned, there was a gentleman who

    was blind. He never asked any special favors, however he did have his wife to guide him if he was not familiar with a place. He was a lector at the parish, and used his braille lector book to do the readings. On Holy Saturday night when the rst readings were done he truly could read in the 'darkness' of the Old Testament. Even though there were night lights that could not be turned off, all the other lights were turned off so we could experience the readings in the dark as they are supposed to be read.

    One of the obvious themes in the readings for the weekend is blindness, both the physical kind and the mental kind. Jesus was able to heal not only the physical blindness of the people but tried to help them see the fact that some of them were blind to their human weaknesses. Just as the Scribes and Pharisees had a hard time looking at the reality of their lives, sometimes we too have a hard time 'seeing' that we need to make changes in our life if we want to follow Jesus in a more perfect way. The easiest examples are to point out those who drink too much but are blind to the idea that they are addicted, or we can add those who cannot see that they are 'hooked' on some prescription medicine or some other substance. There are times when I do not want to admit that I don't pray enough; I might even say that I am blind to the fact that my lack of prayer has an effect on the way that I serve you, the people of God. All of us can look at our life and discern where we need to work on our personal blindness. If we notice the blindness in our life then we have the possibility to, as we see in the second reading... Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth. Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord." " " "
