Leading The Blind

Jesus: “In your soul, blindness and light will alternate just as the night alternates with the day. I will not change this. Just abandon yourself to Me. In all things, My Will shall prevail. Be attentive and wait until I give you the signal to begin.” (Jesus) (January 20, 1963)

Readings: Jesus
told his disciples a parable:
“Can a blind person guide a blind person?
Will not both fall into a pit?
No disciple is superior to the teacher;
but when fully trained,
every disciple will be like his teacher
(Jesus) (Luke 6)

Prayer Meditation- Lord it seems that most of the time we can be so blind. It seems like the illumination in our minds can be fleeting and most days we are just groping in the dark. Sometimes in our blindness ,if we are not abandoned and united to You, we can go ways that seem good to us but that lead to destruction (Proverbs 16) leading others with us into the pit. How can we take the splinter out of our brother’s eye when we got a huge log in ours (Luke 6)? But Lord we trust always that You are directing our steps (Psalm 37). We will not have full light in our souls until we are united with You in Glory, so let us take these times of darkness and hold firmly to Your Hand, not going to the right or the left, (Proverbs 4). Let us be  abandoned in Your Arms and in Your Will and attentive to Your promptings.
