"Amazing Grace" is perhaps the best loved hymn of all time. The line, "I once was lost, but now am found. I was blind, but now I see" the most well known line of the hymn. Who was John Newton, the author of this famous hymn? In John 9, the man born blind is given sight. Do I recognize my own blindness? Do I "see" my own powerlessness and dependance upon God? Do I pray that God gives me spiritual sight?
This homily is part of Fr. Allan MacDonald's series for lent (fourth Sunday of lent).
