The Way of Bartimaeus

This is a meditation concerning the encounter between Jesus and Bartimaeus and how it relates to each of us, given during a time of Eucharistic Adoration. Follow along with the meditation by reading this Scripture passage:

Then they came to Jericho. And as Jesus was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road. When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many were sternly telling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage! Arise! He is calling for you.” Throwing aside his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus. And answering him, Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you?”And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!” And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the way.
