30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 29, 2006
Readings. Gospel: Mark 10:46-52
Bartimaeus knows what he needs. He wants to be able to see like most in his village. He must have been seeking help from every faith healer and quacks, every magician and holy sites. The fact that he now comes to Jesus as a last resort means he will recognize Jesus not alone as a miracle healer, but more profoundly as the Son of God. For Bartimaeus, it is not simply his sight has been restored, but his life now begins as a follower of Jesus Christ. Therefore his whole life has been changed.
