Commentary on the Gospel of
“What do you want me to do for you?”
Do you think the message to the angel of the church in Ephesus from the first reading could be adressed to you as well? “I know all about you: how hard you work, …. that you have patience, and have suffered for my name …. Nevertheless, I have this complaint to make; you have less love now than you used to”. If you think this applies to you, do what a blind man described in today gospel did: pray to Jesus for what you want Him to do for you.
Praise God for all the good in your life and call out to Jesus who has restored your heart. Do not let some people scold you and tell you to keep quiet, but shout all the louder: “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me”. Then “think where you were before you fell, repent, and do as you used to at first”, return to following Christ and making Him known, loved, served and praised by others.
