March 26th 2017 – Lent 4A

(John 9:1-41)
The man was born blind
yet through spit, mud and washing
he saw: a new life.

The authorities
would not, could not, dared not see
and rejected him.

Jesus brings light, sight
to lives that are limited
by our not seeing.

He calls us to see
more clearly, love more dearly,
follow more nearly.
