Oct 25

The gospel story for today seems a painful reminder that we live with persistent grief and loss. Bartimaeus is blind, Jesus stops and restores his sight. What then happens to many of us who cry out by the roadside longing to be healed from our own afflictions?

We look closely at this encounter and realise there is much more than meets the eye. In Bartimaeus we find strength and hope. In Jesus we find a way to move forward and find new meaning and hope amidst the reality of life.
