During the six weeks of Lent 2020, Bishop Donal McKeown invites us, as individuals, as families and parish faith communities of the Diocese of Derry, to use the six Sunday Gospels of Lent to look at the life of service to which God is calling all of us, as the 2020 disciples of Jesus.
Priests and parishioners of the diocese are asked to create opportunities in their parish for discussion of each Gospel reflection.
Bishop Donal's fouth reflection for consideration is outlined below.

Reflection by Bishop Donal
In today's Gospel we encounter a man who has been born blind. This man suffers from the great drawback of physical blindness. And yet, the Gospel tells us that it is he who, in his encounter with Jesus, sees who Jesus is and guides the way in discipleship. The religious authorities - who have no physical sight impairment - are blinded by lack of trust and inability to believe.
Reflections for discussion and consideration:
