Bartimaeus prays the perfect prayer in today’s Gospel, indeed the only prayer of any effectiveness. We all come to the Lord as beggars! Fr.

Ginu’s Homily: https://www.saintmarymanitoubeach.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Fr-Ginu-09-05-2021.mp3 In today’s Gospel, Jesus heals in a sacramental way. He uses touch, words, and even his own spit to bring about healing. It’s a good reminder of the power of the sacraments – form and matter used in service of God’s glory and our eternal benefit.

In other passages, he calls them “whitewashed tombs,” meaning clean on the outside but full of corruption.
One can easily understand the crowd’s confusion and hesitancy. If Jesus can feed the world with his body, then he is more than a prophet – he is God! It boggles the mind to think that the Lord loves us this much.https://www.saintmarymanitoubeach.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Fr.-Todd-8-8-2021.mp3
