[A way to live Mark 10:46-50, one of the readings in many churches for the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost from the Revised Common Lectionary for 10/25/15. A blind beggar calls to Jesus for help. The crowd tries to silence him but Jesus hears him. When Jesus asks what does he want, he asks to see him again. Jesus says his belief that Jesus could help him, saves him, and the blind man sees.]
