Friday of the 1 week of Advent ‘c’
“Do you believe that I can do this?” Do you? Do you believe that Jesus can do anything? Or maybe you just pray to Him, asking for a favor, but then somewhere in your mind you wonder if He will do that for you? If you have doubts, that means you don’t fully believe. Jesus is asking two blind men the same question today: “Do you believe that I can do this?” Whatever it may be, do you really believe without any reservations? It’s hard, isn’t it? I know it is hard for me too, and when I pray asking for a gift of healing for someone who is very ill, I do have some doubts… unfortunately. And that means that I don’t put my total trust and faith in Jesus. We need to pray asking Jesus, please increase my faith, please make it stronger. So when I ask You for something, Jesus, I will have no doubts at all that you can do it. “Do you believe that I can do this? ‘Yes, Lord,’ they said to him.
