For the Ride Home
by Ted Bergh
23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)
September 6, 2009
Scripture
•Then will the eyes of the blind be opened, the ears of the deaf be cleared; then will the lame leap like a stag, then the tongue of the mute will sing. (Isaiah 35)
•The LORD gives sight to the blind; the LORD raises up those who were bowed down. (Psalm 146:8,9)
•Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him? (James 2:5)
•“He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” (Mark 7:37)
 
Reflection
•God gives sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, mobility to the lame, speech to the mute and faith to the poor. Is there a pattern here? What is Scripture saying? Can someone who is complete find God? Or, is anyone complete without God?
