4th Sunday of Lent

This week's Gospel is from John 9 where Jesus heals the blind man. Just as Jesus healed the man, He opens our eyes and brings light to our lives during this time of Lent. It is because of this and because we draw near to Easter that we can rejoice. This weekend is called Laetare Sunday, which means "Rejoice" and comes from the beginning words of our Entrance Antiphon.

"The word of God is a spring of light. The light therefore fills, and the light shines, and illumines the senses of the faithful." - St. John Chrysostom's Homily: "On zeal and piety, and on the man born blind."
