Christ Opens Eyes

View God's World

eyesAs members of the Mystical Body grow into holiness, Christ opens their eyes and they begin to view God's world differently. They see things in a new light. This same thing happened to two disciples who met Jesus Christ after the resurrection as they hurried along the road to Emmaus. Though they knew Jesus well, they failed to recognize him as they walked and talked. Suddenly, as Jesus broke bread in their home, he opened their eyes. Then in Luke 24.37 we read, "they were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost."

Vision for our Neighbors

StressWhen Jesus Christ opens eyes he gives us a renewed vision for our neighbors who may not know him. Christ transforms our view of the growing numbers of seniors, the young professional Millennials and the ethnic groups speaking their own languages. Christ directs us to the new poor in our big cities. As we minister to others, we begin to understand ourselves. We realize our own impoverished nature and begin to comprehend our wonderful status in God's sight as his children. Christ awakens us to our own frailty and then to God's power working in us.✞
