The Blindness of Blame – Sunday’s Homily
On this Sunday of the Blind Man, it’s time to confront our mistake in assigning blame. The tragedies of our society strike us in such a way that we are tempted to knee jerk blame this or that person, or group, or ideology. We insist we want justice or we want to make things better and yet we start that process by saying it’s “their” fault. Blaming others won’t solve the problems we face. We have to start with humility. We have to begin, not with blame, but with humility and repentance.
