Mark 10:46–52

In Sunday’s Gospel, the blind Bartimaeus had to make up his mind about Jesus without the benefit of seeing him. He asked Jesus for the gift of sight. His faith was rewarded with vision. We all learn about Jesus from what we hear of him from those who teach us and from what we see in his followers. Our faith response is also rewarded with the gift of vision. We come to see Jesus as our Lord and Teacher who leads us to the Father.

Marcos 10, 46–52

En el Evangelio del domingo, el ciego Bartimeo tuvo que formarse una opinión propia sobre Jesús sin el beneficio de verlo. Corrió hacia Jesús y le pidió el don de la vista. Su fe fue premiada y empezó a ver. Todos aprendimos acerca de Jesús por lo que escuchamos sobre Él de quienes nos enseñan y de lo que vemos en sus seguidores. Nuestra respuesta de fe también es premiada con el don de la vista. Llegamos a ver a Jesús como nuestro Señor y Maestro que nos lleva hasta el Padre.
