This homily is on the healing of the blind man as recounted in John 9:1-41.
The healing stories in the Gospel take on new meaning in times like this! Our Lord’s healing of the blind man in today’s Gospel story offers us a much-needed message.
This healing miracle, unlike others, did not happen instantaneously. While the other healings of our Lord were achieved with almost just one word or a single touch, this one involved several steps–including the use of the bizarre mixture of saliva and spittle.
