“The journey of the man born blind and the authorities stand in stark contrast to each other. One moves from physical blindness, to sight, to spiritual awareness; the other moves from physical sight deeper into darkness brought about by attempts to deny the reality staring them in the face. In a time when the world – and the Church – is confronted by pandemic, we could be tempted to deny the facts and reality which we face. Or we could seek to allow God to draw us into a spiritual awakening that focuses on the revelation of God in the here and now. The choice is ours.”
