Sunday Reflection

It can be hard to stand up and be counted in society. We are conditioned not to make spectacles of ourselves. But unless we stand up for truth and justice, we fail others and condemn ourselves to mediocrity.
Theologian Michel de Verteuil has a wonderful prayer in connection with today’s Gospel: “Lord, there are many people sitting at the side of the road, shouting to us to have pity on them, but they often shout in strange ways: by behaving badly in the classroom; by taking drugs and alcohol; by sulking, remaining silent or locked up in their rooms; sometimes by insisting that they are happy to be at the side of the road while others pass by. Like Jesus, we need to stop all that we are doing so that we can hear them express their deep longing to have their sight restored to them.”
How hard would it be for us to say “What do you want me to do for you?”
