Saint Nicholas, Bishop
Readings for the day:
Isaiah 29: 17-24
Psalm 27: 1,4,13-14
Matthew 9: 27-31
Behold, Our Lord shall come with power and enlighten the eyes of his servants. Alleluia! (Gospel Acclamation).
just like the blind men in the gospel reading of today, our world is blind in sin, we wallow in our sinfulness and dine on the table of shame. Things that are good is now referred to as evil, while the evil is behold as good. How long is it going to take us to cry out, “Have mercy on us, son of David”. How Long is it going to take us to approach our Light and Salvation.
The season of Advent avail us again to look deep inside of us, recognize our blindness and approach the master. in the first reading; In that day, the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness, the blind shall see.-isaiah 29:18. God wants us to approach him believing in his saving grace. God is always ready to heal us of our blindness. The question he asks us is “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”. What would our response be.
The men whose sight was restored can’t but spread God’s fame. Let us as people of light whose eyes was restored tell of his “Amazing grace”, proclaiming to the world his fame and making a channel for them to follow.
May God help us as we do this through christ our lord, Amen.
