Gospel, Luke 18:35-43
35 Now it happened that as he drew near to Jericho there was a blind man sitting at the side of the road begging.
36 When he heard the crowd going past he asked what it was all about,
37 and they told him that Jesusthe Nazarene was passing by.
38 So he called out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.’
39 The people in front scolded him and told him to keep quiet, but he only shouted all the louder, ‘Son of David, have pity on me.’
40 Jesus stopped and ordered them to bring the man to him, and when he came up, asked him,
41 ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Sir,’ he replied, ‘let me see again.’
42 Jesus said to him, ‘Receive your sight. Your faith has saved you.’
43 And instantly his sight returned and he followed him praising God, and all the people who saw it gave praise to God.
