Homily for Quinquagesima

Today's homily for Quinquagesima (50 Days Before Easter) focused on the Gospel reading of Luke 18:31-43 and is titled "Christ's Cure for Your Blindness." What a great reading with which to prepare for Ash Wednesday and the whole season of Lent. As He did with His disciples, Jesus must remove our blindness - of sin, that is - so that we can see with the eyes of faith and follow Him to Jerusalem, to the Cross, and ultimately to the joyous festivity of Easter and celebrating His victory over death. After all, only our Lord Jesus can open our eyes to see that His sacrificial death on the Cross brings forgiveness and life for us.
