Friday 9 September
Friday of week 23 in Ordinary Time
Saint Peter Claver
‘Can one blind man guide another?’ We know the answer. No. A blind man cannot guide another person. Bu the really question here is, “when is one becoming blind?”. When do I become blind? The answer is: I become blind when I lose my conscience. I become blind when I keep doing the same mistakes again and again. I become blind when I am insensitive to the feelings of others. I become blind when I close my eyes and ears to the sufferings of others. I become blind when I ignore the injustice done to others. Today is the day to see whether I am blind or not? Am I trying to correct others when I am blind? Be sincere and answer before yourselves and before your Lord.
