Reflection

To believe is to see and to follow Jesus. Jesus is making the last journey of his life; he leaves Jericho for Jerusalem, where he will be acclaimed as messiah before being put to death. A blind beggar named Bartimaeus is the first to recognize the messiah. (The person who is without sight sees what is most important, while those who would silence him are the truly blind). The man’s persistence wins Jesus’ attention and Christ gives him the sight which is the outward sign of faith. This beggar, one who asks, does what every person of faith must do: follow the Lord. He sets off toward Jerusalem where in turn the crowd will recognize their messiah. The first reading invites us to rejoice in our salvation, for which God is exuberantly joyful; so should we be. God will lead back from exile the remnant of the faithful, especially the weakest. God, who loves us like a father will help us on our journey. Hebrews tells us that Christ’s priesthood comes directly from God. He is our high priest who will lead all peoples home.
