For 27 May 2021, Thursday of week 8 in Ordinary Time, based on Mark 10:46-52
Jesus and his disciples came to Jericho. As they and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, â€˜Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!â€™ Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, â€˜Son of David, have mercy on me!â€™ Jesus stood still and said, â€˜Call him here.â€™ And they called the blind man, saying to him, â€˜Take heart; get up, he is calling you.â€™ So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. Then Jesus said to him, â€˜What do you want me to do for you?â€™ The blind man said to him, â€˜My teacher, let me see again.â€™ Jesus said to him, â€˜Go; your faith has made you well.â€™ Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way.
