Persevere dear sisters and brothers, persevere in holiness amidst trials,suffering and temptations. Draw your strength and wisdom NOT from men but from our Lord.

Our sweet and loving Lord knows our limitations and our weaknesses. He desires that we grow in strength, faith and love. So He patiently and gently urges on, picks us up and dust us off when we fall. He opens our hearts and minds slowly so that we can not only see and feel but understand and embrace all that is from Him.

Let us strive to climb up the Holy mountain of our Lord and help one another along the way. Amen

FIRST READING
James 1:19–27

GOSPEL
Mark 8:22–26

When Jesus and his disciples arrived at Bethsaida, people brought to him a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. Putting spittle on his eyes he laid his hands on the man and asked,
“Do you see anything?”
Looking up the man replied, “I see people looking like trees and walking.” Then he laid hands on the man’s eyes a second time and he saw clearly; his sight was restored and he could see everything distinctly. Then he sent him home and said, “Do not even go into the village.”
