For 3 December 2010, Friday of the 1st Week of Advent, based on Matthew 9:27-31
Blindness. Faith. Seek the Lord.
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, â€˜Have mercy on us, Son of David!â€™ When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, â€˜Do you believe that I am able to do this?â€™ They said to him, â€˜Yes, Lord.â€™ Then he touched their eyes and said, â€˜According to your faith let it be done to you.â€™ And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, â€˜See that no one knows of this.â€™ But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district.
