Refusing anonymity

Jesus cures the man born blind

JESUS MAFA. Jesus cures the man born blind, from Art in the Christian Tradition, a project of the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, TN. [retrieved October 25, 2015]

 Jesus has a personal relationship with me. I know his name. He knows mine. I am not an anonymous being.  I am a daughter of God, created in love by God, beloved of God, uniquely, mysteriously me.

I have been given the grace to know Jesus by name. Let me pass on the gift by knowing you by name, by refusing anonymity to you, my brother or sister in God.

Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.” Mark 10:46-47
