Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 29, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Peter 2:2-5, 9-12
Psalm 100:2, 3, 4, 5
Mark 10:46-52

A reflection on today's Scripture:

I love today's Gospel about the blind Bartimaeus.

I can just see him calling out to Jesus and I can picture how he irritated some of the bystanders, that he should make such a scene.

At some time, haven't you witnessed someone who made a spectacle, pushing themselves upon a scene and making everyone around them irritated and angry? Didn't you think that they were rather a nuisance, if not altogether rude?

Not Jesus. He asks, "What do you want me to do for you?" Faintheartedness doesn't set in on Bartimaeus, and he continues by boldly saying, "Master, I want to see!"

The unlikely continues with Jesus saying,

"Go your way; your faith has saved you."

Immediately he received his sight. . . .

Isn't that a wonderful story?

Isn't there something you would like Jesus to do for you? Think about it, pray about it, in faith, ask for it!

"O Jesus, Master, I want. . . ."
