30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Gospel according to Mark 10.46-52
As Jesus left Jericho with his disciples and a large crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, son of Timaeus, sitting by the road beggar. Upon hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he started to scream and say, "Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me." And many berated him, telling him to shut up. But he kept screaming, "Son of David, have mercy on me." Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called the blind man, saying to him: “Be reassured, get up, Jesus is calling you. " He threw off his cloak, stood up and came to Jesus. Jesus said to her in response: “What do you want me to do for you? The blind man answered him: “Master, I want to see. Jesus said to her: “Go your way, your faith has saved you. Immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.
