DO YOU SEE NOW?

Every parent and teacher asks children this question countless times – Do you see now?   It is the adults way of checking that the child has learned.  It has nothing to do with their eyesight.  We ask the child if they understand – most often in the context of behavior. For example, we want them to see why certain behavior is destructive to family life or inappropriate in a certain context.  It is all about seeing with the head or seeing with the heart.

Today’s Gospel plays with “seeing”.  On the surface, it is the story of a man born blind.  Jesus cures him in a wonderful miracle.  As John the Evangelist tells the story, we begin to see behind the surface of the story. 

The issue is about “seeing” the identity of Jesus.  The Pharisees, who think they can see, are blind and they are never cured.  Some of the neighbors are blind, but others can see.  The man’s parents are a curious couple.  They seem to be choosing blindness and are unwilling to “see” Jesus.   By the end of the story, the man born blind has not only his eyesight but he is the hero.  He is the one who recognized Jesus and worshiped him.  He became a disciple.

This man is our example.  We are disciples of Jesus and our vocation is to see him as our savior and to see what he calls us to do.  Sin can make us blind and we too can choose to be blind.  Lent is our time to open our eyes and “see”. 

                                                                                      God bless you all.
