  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 18:35-43)
It was common for a rabbi to lecture as he walked with others. Jesus was on his way to celebrate the Passover in Jerusalem and a group of pilgrims went behind him. When the crowd tried to quiet the blind man who knew Jesus, he overpowered them by his loud emotional shout and thus caught the attention of Jesus. This event reveals something important regarding how God interacts with us. The blind man was determined to get Jesus' notice and he was unrelenting in the face of resistance. Jesus could have unnoticed or refused him because he was interrupting his talk and disturbing his listeners. Jesus showed that performing was more significant than talking. This man was in desperately needed and Jesus was prepared not only to identify with his distress but to relieve it as well. A great orator can command attention and admiration, but a man or woman with a helping hand and a generous heart is loved more. Jesus praises Bartimaeus for recognizing who he is with the eyes of faith and giving him physical sight as well. Do you recognise your need for God's healling grace and do you look for Jesus out, like Bartimaeus, with unrelenting faith and trust in his goodness and mercy?
