Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
Sunday, December 15
The blind receive their sight and the lame walk
This is the third Sunday of advent, gaudete Sunday. It is a time to give thanks and rejoice for Jesus has come to heal our iniquities and rescue us from sin. As we gather together today one Verbum Dei family, let us celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus who is the reason for our joy. He has come to live among us, and raise us out of darkness! Lord, we rejoice today at the immeasurable gift of Your Son. May we allow Him to heal us of our spiritual blindness.
