Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 28, 2012

TODAY (Green) Jer 31:7-9, Heb 5:1-6, Mk 10:46-52

NEXT WEEK (Green) Dt 6:2-6, Heb 7:23-28, Mk 12:28b-34

Those traveling with Jesus look upon Bartimaeus as an interruption on the journey. Jesus, on the other hand, sees Bartimaeus as the point of the journey: to bring salvation to all who are open to Jesus’ presence and gifts. Like Bartimaeus and the crowd, we are called to receive “sight” along our journey of following Jesus. The encounter between Jesus and Bartimaeus dramatizes essential elements of true discipleship: to see with the eyes of faith and to follow Jesus.
