‘Jesus asks an extremely important question of Bartimeus: “What is it that you want me to do for you?”   “What are you really asking me to

do?”  ‘Naturally Bartimeus is asking for his sight back. But Jesus is asking him a deeper question.

“Do you realize the consequences of what you are asking?   Do you understand what this request is going to lead you to receive?”  For Bartimeus it will mean a completely new life.   If he receives his sight, he will no longer be a beggar, he will have to face a new life, a new vocation, a new everything. This is exciting but also challenging. ‘
