Sirach 42:15-25, Psalm 33:2-9, Mark 10:46-52
Everything in the created world is the work of the Father, upheld and sustained through the Word that is His Son and everything obeys the will of God and serves the purpose for which each was created. The Life that is in everything is by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The greatest minds the world has ever known and will know possessed only a fraction of all knowledge and there is infinitely more that remains veiled in mystery.
Nothing is hidden from God from whom all things come to whom all return. His power and glory are visible to all for they are a testimony to Him. They reflect His knowledge the infinite variety of all things gives us a glimpse of this wisdom and knowledge.
Everything He does is perfect and none can add anything or take away anything from all that He has created. He needs the advise and counsel of no one. Beauty is the hallmark of His work - everything is light for in Him there is no darkness. All things were created for a purpose and they fulfill the purpose for which they were created for all things serve His will. He made all things in pairs so each could complete and fulfill the other and together to make a whole. There is no lack for each bring to the other what the other needs and the two become whole and fulfilled.
One can never tire of contemplating the wonder, beauty and mystery of His works and fall on our knees in worship of the Creator of all these marvels.
My Beloved, we must spend all our days in praise and thanksgiving for all the Triune God has created. The Father spoke the Eternal Word that reposed in Him eternally and the Breath that brought forth the Word that formed everything in the heavens and on earth.
As the Father willed so it came to be and continues to fulfill His purposes through His Son and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
My Beloved, sin clouds our vision and renders us blind. We are unable to see Your reflection in the beauty of the created world because it becomes invisible. In baptism we are made children of God and the Sacraments of initiation help us to live good holy lives, pleasing to You but we are weak - the world, the flesh and the devil are constantly at work to lure us from the true, the good and the beautiful. Often we fall into the snares of the enemy and slowly little by little, we lose our sight. The loss is often imperceptible for we make little compromises with sin everyday until one day we find we can see nothing. But we always feel the lack, the loss and in often because of this, we recover our shame and sorrow and we begin to long to see again.
Nothing but contrition and confession can help us our keen sense of loss is sharpened when and this desire. You pass by and hear us call. You stop and invite us to come to You and make us speak up and implore Your help so we are in no doubt about what we desire. Then You reach out, touch, heal and make whole again. Once our sight is restored we have to follow You, walk with You, become a disciple.
