This week's Gospel tells of a man who was born blind receiving miraculous healing after an encounter with Jesus: the story helps us to reflect on how Jesus restores both physical and spiritual sight.
The blind man who was healed came openly and honestly to Jesus, and so was able to see Jesus as He truly is, the Son of God. However, the religious leaders of the time, the Pharisees, were more concerned with their own dogma and failed to see the true Jesus.
This week's prayers help children to know that they can come to Jesus openly and honestly and share all their questions, hopes and fears. As they do this, they will be invited to recognise how Jesus is at work in every moment of their lives
