4th Sunday in Lent

St. Pius X | News

The gospel today about the man born blind is for all time and every day.  At a deeper level it reminds us that we were all born blind and were groping in spiritual darkness until at baptism we began our journey of faith in the likeness of Christ.  The life we receive at baptism gives […]
