“Jesus have pity on me,” the blind man cried out as Jesus passed by. Touched by the blind man’s faith, Jesus healed him. We may not be physically blind or hurting, but we are all blind and injured, all in need of Jesus’ healing touch or word. Life is an ever-flowing stream of injuries, and frequently the injuries are inner or spiritual wounds that can cripple us. Melancholy, depression, abuse, betrayals, and bitter disappointments can blind us to the fullness of life, can trap us in a dark corner of despair. The inner injuries that we accumulate and allow to go unhealed can rip apart the fabric of our existence.
