As a preparation to this Sunday’s Gospel (John 9:1-41, Jesus heals a blind man):—————-

The Christian frankly admits

that his view of the external world is colored by the mind of Christ,
but he maintains that thereby he catches
the true colors of creation’s handiwork.

Ralph W. Sockman

Two men look out through the same bars;
One sees mud, and one the stars.

Frederick Langbridge

Now it is faith to believe that which you do not yet see;
and the reward of faith is to see that which you believe.

Augustine

* * * * * * * * * *
Just as a hand held before the eyes conceals the greatest mountain,
so does petty earthly life conceal from view
the vast lights and mysteries of which the world is full.

Rabbi Nachman of Bratislava

* * * * * * * * * *

A proud person is always looking down on things and people;
and, of course, as long as you’re looking down,
you can’t see something that’s above you.

C. S. Lewis
