This week’s reflection explores the healing of a man born blind (John Chapter 9). On encountering the man, the disciples speculate about the cause of his blindness whereas Jesus acts decisively in compassion, enabling the man to see “fully”. In the past some believed there was a link between sin and suffering or disability. Of course there are consequences from turning away from the light of God, but, as we learn from the Book of Job, there can be a cruel randomness to suffering (as many have experienced over the past year).

This week may we all turn to the light of God, allow Him to work through our reluctance to help others.
