For 11 December 2016, Third Sunday of Advent, based on Matthew 11:2-11
When John heard in prison what the Messiah was doing, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, â€˜Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?â€™ Jesus answered them, â€˜Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them. And blessed is anyone who takes no offence at me.â€™
