What do you want me to do for you?

“He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. Jesus said to him in reply, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ The blind man replied to him, ‘Master, I want to see.’ Jesus told him, ‘Go your way; your faith has saved you.’ Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.” (MK 10: 50-52)

The question was asked of Bartimaeus, but it is a universal question of Our Lord when He sees that we are in need. Bartimaeus was in need, so when he saw the opportunity, he cried out for help. And when “many rebuked him, telling him to be silent, he kept calling out all the more.” When Jesus asked him the question, his answer was so precise—“I want to see.” It could be the same with us.

I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
