Jesus heard that they had thrown him [the blind man] out, and when he found him, he said, 
“Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 
“Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.” 
Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.” 
Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.  
Jesus said,“For judgment I have come into this world, 
so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, 
“What? Are we blind too?” 
Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; 
but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.  
John 9:35-41

Almighty God,  
you have delivered us from the death of sin  
and raised us to new life in your love,  
through our Saviour Jesus Christ;  
and in baptism you have made us one with him  
so that now we are the children of light.  
Grant that we may walk in his light  
and show forth your glory in the world; 
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
