Though I was blind, now I see! - 06/07/2024
Last updated: 2024-06-07 11:23:34

During His earthly ministry, Jesus met, spoke with, enlightened, and healed a vast number of people, every single day.  As St. John says, if each and every one of His encounters were written down, the world could not contain all of the books that it would require.  So why did the Holy Spirit guide the Evangelists to record those specific events, those encounters, which we find in the Gospels?  What is it about them that make them somehow special?  As most of you probably know, it is because those encounters that are recorded for us are universal.  In 2000 years, while our technology and science are exponentially beyond what it was then, people are still people- as a species, we really haven’t changed.  And those people about whom we read in Scripture, well, they are us - in some way, they represent all of us, both collectively and personally.  And the lessons that their stories impart are just as applicable to us today as they were 2000 years ago.  Today’s Reading, that of the Blindman, is a classic example of this.

Вознесіння Господа нашого Ісуса Христа - 06/07/2024
Last updated: 2024-06-07 11:47:39

Господь наш Ісус Христос приготовлював Своїх учеників до розлуки з ним та до продовження ними Його місії на землі. Після Свого Воскресіння із мертвих Ісус являвся вже прославленим тілом ученикам, жонам-мироносицям, апостолам, вірним, споживав з ними їжу та навчав про Царство Боже, творив чудеса (Ів. 21:6).
