After listening to this pod cast I become more aware that I need to learn more about the Gospel John and the analogies to Hebrew Scripture. I have learned that Jesus is the center of the world, my world. But I am but a neoophyte. I need to learn even more.

Gave new meaning to the story of the blind man.

well if the story of the blind man is really only an archetypal story of coming to spiritual vision, then this thing about the afterlife is then bogus too. Is it only our memory that lives on?

Tina, remember Fr. Barron pointed out the story is both historical and archetypal, not either/or. Think about a defining moment in your life you have shared with others. When you retell that story, you probably emphasize the details that may relate to others, but that doesn't negate its historicity.

I absolutely love the allusion to the Old Testament, which reminds me of St. Augustine of Hippo's poignant claim:"The New Testament is concealed in the Old, and the Old Testament is revealed in the New." As always beautifully done!

I have a question for Carol Helin: "You say, "Gave new meaning to the story of the blind man." But what was the old meaning?

For me, Fr. Barron, illuminated the hidden meaning of the symbolic allusions in the story of the man born blind, as a master teacher does.

Lord help me, but I had never seen the connection between creation or rather re creatrion and baptism in this well known historical account of the man born blind.
John's Gospel played a very important part in my conversion 47 years ago.
It was the first real Bible I read and it started to change my whole way of thinking smashing so many of my preconceived ideas that had been ingrained in me due to my British education.
Thanks Father Bob once again for being such a good and anointed teacher..
We are truly blessed.

It was a tremendous pleasure to stumble upon Fr. Barron this past weekend while visiting the Chicago area. We heard this sermon live, and Fr.'s delivery and passion adds to the message. Thanks for the wonderful homily, Father!

Great homily, Fr. Barron! Really appreciate all your shared insights! C.S. Lewis had a great quote to go with your message: "I believe in Jesus Christ's Resurrection as I believe that the Sun has risen. Not only do I see the Sun's light directly, but by the Sun's light I see everything else around me..."
