I was blind, now I can see!
In the movie Bella the blind man's sign reads, "God closed my eyes. Now I can see." This image came to mind when I was reflecting on this week's Gospel from John. Somehow God is calling us to see with new eyes his love for us. He wants us to be able to see at a level that we are somehow unable to when we are seeing as the world sees. The Video above is taken from a clip from Into Great Silence (about the life of Carthusian Monks in the French Alps). The monk speaks of his own blindness and mortality in a beautiful way. Let's pray that we may be given true sight as the man in the Gospel; and may we live wide awake in the light of the Lord!
