Xavier Lavagetto, OP, Pastor/Directr of the Catholic Community of Stanford March 15, 2015 - In the Gospel today, Jesus cures the blind man, and as the Pharisees question him, his faith gradually grows. He starts with "I do not know how he cured me", to "He is from God". God sees us through our heart, not by outward appearances. If we see but do not love God, we too are blind. Let us see the goodness in our days and thank God for these many graces. Preacher: Fr. Xavier Lavagetto, OP, Pastor/Directr of the Catholic Community of Stanford Sun, 15 Mar 2015 13:00:00 PDT Fr.
