A reading from the holy Gospel according to John ( John 9:1-41)
Jesus was walking, he saw a man born blind. Jesus spat on the ground and made some mud. He took the mud and rubbed on the blind man’s eyes. Jesus said to him, “Go and wash in the pool of Siloam,” The blind man went to the pool, washed, came back and he could see.
These people brought the man to meet the Pharisees. The day that Jesus made the mud and cured the blind man, that day was the Sabbath. The Pharisees asked the man, “How did you receive your sight?” The man answered, “He made some mud and rubbed it on my eyes; I washed and now I can see.” The Pharisees said, “This man, Jesus, cannot be from God. He broke the law of the Sabbath.” But other people said, “How can a sinner do miracles like that?” So the Jews argued and disagreed with each other. The Jewish leaders asked the blind man again, “This man, Jesus, healed you. What do you think of him?” The man answered, “He is a prophet.”
The Jewish leaders replied, “Are you trying to teach us. You are a sinner from birth!” They threw him out. Jesus heard what had happened he found the man and said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” The man answered, “Tell me where to find him so that I can believe in him.” Jesus said, “You are looking at him; I am he.” The man said, “Lord I believe,” and he worshipped Jesus.
