The Man Born Blind (3)
A reading from the Gospel of Saint John 9, 24 – 41:
So a second time the Pharisees called the man who had been blind and said to him, “Give God the praise!. We know that this man is a sinner.” He replied, “If he is a sinner, I do not know. One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see.” So they said to him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?” He answered them, “I told you already and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples too?” They ridiculed him and said, “You are that man’s disciple; we are disciples of Moses. We know that God spoke to Moses, but we do not know where this one is from.” The man answered and said to them, “This is what is so amazing, that you do not know where he is from, yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if one is devout and does his will, he listens to him. It is unheard of that anyone ever opened the eyes of a person born blind. If this man was not from God, he would not be able to do anything.” They answered and said to him, “You were born totally in sin, and are you trying to teach us?” Then they threw him out.
When Jesus heard that they had threw him out, he found him and said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered and said, “Who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he.” He said, “I do believe, Lord,” and he worshiped him. Then Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, so that those who do not see might see, and those who do see might become blind.”
Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard this and said to him, “Surely, we are not also blind, are we?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you are saying, “We see, so your sin remains.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I call you all My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters to come and read My words which I told Father Melvin. I had opened the eyes of a man blind from birth by using My power of healing. The Jews who saw this found it a great miracle. They had never seen this that a man blind from birth could all of a sudden see very clearly. This man was brought to the Pharisees and they questioned him, saying, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?” The man who was healed said that a man took clay and rubbed his eyes and told him to go and wash and when he did so, he could see very well. The Pharisees doubted that the man was born blind but having questioned his parents, it was true that he could not see from birth. The Pharisees had told the man who was healed that I was a sinner. The healed man defended Me by telling them that God does not listen to a person who is a sinner. He will listen to a devout man and one who does the will of God. He said to them that it is unheard of that one can open the eyes of a man born blind. In this way he showed them that I was from God. The Pharisees ridiculed him by saying he was a sinner and threw him out.
After a short time, I met the man whom I healed and asked him if he believed in the Son of Man. He did not know the Son of Man. So I told him that I was the one. So he said that he believed and he worshiped Me. Because of his faith in Me, he will be saved.
So, My dear friends, you too are called to believe with all your heart that I am the Son of Man, the Savior of the world. I am the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. Come and follow Me and you too will be saved. I love you all.”
