John Paul II was a great nurturer and protector of his flock, especially the most vulnerable, the unborn, the elderly, and the disabled. He did this by his complete rootedness in Christ. From the very beginning, in the homily of the Mass in which he was formally instituted as Pope, he called on us to have no fear and to allow Christ to be our model and anchor.
Bartimaeus is asking Jesus not for sight but for life! The cure of this blind man was not just being healed for the sake of being healed but in order to follow Jesus. In the depths of all of our hearts there is a thirst for life. Prayer is not just a devotional obligation but the means by which we uncover this desire. Help us Lord uncover our deepest desires!
