Angelic Visitations and Supernatural Encounters. It is quite a challenge, no longer to sit by the roadside relying on passers by for food and money. This is in stark contrast to the same question Jesus had posed to James and John as we heard last week. Bartimaeus, blind at the beginning of the short sentence, was seeing by the end of it. No surgery, no bandages, no drops every four hours, no glasses, just perfect sight.
Open My Eyes (AOV 1/166)
Just imagine the very first thing that Bartimaeus saw — the face of Jesus. How amazing was that? First of all, the cry of one in need is far sweeter to Jesus than the shallow hallelujahs of the crowd. Jesus will hear our cry when it comes from the heart. Secondly, Bartimaeus left his cloak, probably the only thing he owned to go to Jesus.
Are we prepared to let go of something precious — to receive from Jesus? Or ask that question another way. What are we holding on to that is stopping us seeing Jesus? And most important of all, Jesus was passing through Jericho, never to pass that way again. If Bartimaeus had sat still that day and said nothing, then the next day would have been like all the others before. He would have sat by the road begging until he died.

We can see with our eyes, but our spiritual sight still needs to be switched on, so that we can see the beggar, the homeless, the asylum seeker, the refugee, the mentally ill, the poor, and the other that is not quite like us. In other words we need to see as Jesus does. Jesus is here today, we meet him in his Word and in the Eucharist - we meet Him in the breaking of bread — and in the Wine.
