It is hard to believe that we are at the Fourth Sunday of Lent already! I don’t know whether this has been a good Lent or not for you but it certainly is flying by so quickly. The readings for Year A during the Season of Lent remind us that following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, the call to discipleship, is never easy and is a life-long process of conversion. From the temptation of Jesus in the desert to the transfiguration of Christ on the mountain to the story of the Samaritan woman at the well, we realize that the Christian life is a turning away from sin, the recognition that suffering is an inevitable part of life and, and that a relationship with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior is at the heart of a disciple. Today’s beautiful Gospel of the man born blind asks us to look at the blind spots in our lives and to turn to Jesus for healing and a new way of seeing. Ultimately, we are called to see with the eyes of Jesus, to let his vision to be our vision. As we look back on this Lent (and our lives), let us see the places where we have been blind to the presence of Christ in our lives and may we be always open to the healing grace that he offers us!
