Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
Sometimes when we seek to follow Jesus it is other disciples of Jesus who try to discourage us. With God's Grace we must continue to call upon the Lord in prayer.
35 Now it came to pass, when he drew nigh to Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the way side, begging.
36 And when he heard the multitude passing by, he asked what this meant.
37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
38 And he cried out, saying: Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.
39 And they that went before, rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried out much more: Son of David, have mercy on me.
40 And Jesus standing, commanded him to be brought unto him. And when he was come near, he asked him,
41 Saying: What wilt thou that I do to thee? But he said: Lord, that I may see.
42 And Jesus said to him: Receive thy sight: thy faith hath made thee whole.
43 And immediately he saw, and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.
