Jesus was walking on the road to Jericho. Many people were with Him. When he was almost at Jericho, His group passed by a man who was blind. The man was sitting by the road, begging for money and food.

The blind man asked the people near him why a crowd was passing them. The people said that Jesus from Nazareth was coming.

Right away, the blind man started shouting, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

The people around the blind man told him to be quiet, but he shouted louder, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

When Jesus got closer, He stopped. He asked that the blind man be brought to Him. When the man got to Jesus, Jesus asked, “What would you like me to do for you?”

The blind man answered, “Lord, I want to see!” Jesus said, “Receive your sight. Because you believed in Me, you are well.”

Right away, the man could see! He followed Jesus, praising God. All the people who saw it also praised God!

"I just wanted to thank you for the impact AFR has had on my life. Without the content you put out on AFR, I would probably have never been lead to the Orthodox church! I'm a seeker right now (not even catechized) and due to life circumstances I probably will be for quite some time, but AFR provides me with the guidance I need to keep on the path to Orthodoxy. May God continue to bless you and AFR in many ways!"
