A ragged beggar sits beside the dusty road in total darkness -- for he's been blind since childhood. Pedestrians hasten past him, ignoring his outstretched arms. Will someone drop a scrap of bread in his lap -- or at least give the poor man a drink of water? Most won't. Most will hurry past him saying "he is none of my business ... I can't be bothered."
Then his keen ears tell him that one passerby has stopped. A hand is extended. He feels the gentle touch of Christ's fingertips ... as a strong, clear voice says "as long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." Suddenly, the gloom is lifted, for Christ has given him the priceless gift of sight.
