Blind Faith

Suppose you were born blind. You never saw color, the sky, birds or people. Then one day someone touched your eyes and you could see. Imagine seeing for the very first time – seeing this wonderful world! That is what happened in the gospel of John in the story of the man born blind. Those around him were asking whose sin caused this blindness. Was it the sin of the parents? Or, was it his sin that caused it? Jesus says no, it was neither, but rather it was to show God’s power and mercy. In this program, Fr. Mike looks carefully at this story of the blind man. He explains the situation of the religious leaders at that time and the laws that they subjected the people to obey.He then explains in detail the many messages of this story from the spittle to the pool of Siloam. He ends with the meaning of looking someone in the eyes.
