Each day holds a surprise, but
only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s
not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow
or as joy. It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome
new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.
As you touched the eyes of
the blind man,
touch us so that our eyes
may be opened,
so that we can “really see”
the many wonderful things around us
and in our own lives.
Then with opened eyes,
help us to thank you for the
many blessings that surround us
each and every day.
Through Christ our Lord.
