For 4 December 2009, Friday of 1st week of Advent, based on Matthew 9:27-31
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, â€œHave mercy on us, Son of David!â€ When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, â€œDo you believe that I am able to do this?â€ They said to him, â€œYes, Lord.â€ Then he touched their eyes and said, â€œAccording to your faith let it be done to you.â€ And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, â€œSee that no one knows of this.â€ But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district.
