Christ healing the blind

Christ healing the blind
Healing Arts
On the Fourth Sunday of Lent, the Church recalls how Christ healed a blind man by the pool of Siloam, a reference perhaps to the fact that Baptism, for which people prepared during Lent, is a baptism of enlightenment as Jesus washes away our spiritual blindness and heals us, so that we may enjoy the vision of God.

This 4th-century carving from an early Christian sarcophagus is in the Vatican Museum.
