I can see clearly now the rain has gone…Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind . It’s gonna be a bright, bright, bright Sunshiny day.(Johnny Nash)
Most of us have no idea what it is like to be physically blind. Spiritual blindness is another matter altogether – I’m sure we can all admit to bouts of that! The blind man in today’s Gospel must not have been blind from birth. His request to Jesus is ‘Master, let me see again.’ He had the gift of sight in the past, and he knows what he is missing. He wants to be able to see again.
 Our faith journey can be a bit like that. Sometimes we see things clearly, and sometimes we are blind to the bigger picture and to where our lives are leading. Dark clouds can come down, perhaps when we are struggling to deal with a stressful time or an illness. We can stray off the path and forget to let God in or to ask for help.
(Triona Doherty, Intercom)
