There are those who see the work of God and the action of God evident, clear as day, happening in the world but they don’t want to see it, they don’t accept it, they don’t recognize it.
“Then Jesus said: I have come into this world for a judgment, so that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.”
Because they were not able to see Jesus, to hear his word. And eaten with envy, they prefer to deny an obvious miracle in the name of their “Law”.
And there are a lot of people acting like this these days. They despise God’s miracles, they trust more in their own capabilities, in the advances of science, in the relativity of relationships and in everything that can be, or tried to be, relativized, than in God.
Even with the evidence of God’s powerful action, many refuse to believe, shrug their shoulders, mock and persuade people to stop attributing miracles and wonders to God.
Who will be able to keep faith in the face of this pressure?

Title: The faith of the blind and the blindness of leaders
“We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if someone is pious and does his will, he listens to him.”
“Then Jesus said, ‘I have come into this world for a judgment, so that those who cannot see may see, and those who see may become blind.’”
“Jesus answered them: ‘If you were blind you would not be guilty; but as you say, ‘We see,’ your sin remains.”
What is God’s message for me today?
The popular saying goes: The worst blind person is the one who doesn’t want to see!
How can I put this into practice?
Down with all pride, down with all arrogance and may the will of God who knows everything, can everything and sees everything prevail.
