Word for the Weekend: A man born blind sees...




Don't watch the video - until you're read the scriptures for this coming Sunday!

This coming weekend, the Fourth Sunday of Lent, brings us John's story of Jesus' cure of a man born blind.

The video above is a remarkably faithful dramatization of the gospel text BUT be sure to read the scriptures for this coming Sunday (and commentary on them) which you'll find here.

Sunday's first reading, from the First Book of Samuel prepares us for the gospel by contrasting how we see with how God sees.  Writing to the Ephesians, St. Paul treats of that light that produces every kind of goodness and truth, the light without which we are left in the darkness of our sin.

Bringing children to church with you?  Read these helpful hints for preparing young ones to hear the Word this weekend.
