Friday of the 1st Week of Advent

Sometimes when we pray and ask God for something, we may not necessarily get what we want so quickly. When this happens, how would we respond? Some would be patient and persistent in asking. Others may give up, thinking that we won't get it anyhow.

Today's Gospel shows us how the 2 blind men were patient and persistent by following Jesus as He went on His way. These 2 kept shouting, "Take pity on us, Son of David." Due to their patience, persistence and faith, Jesus healed them and their sight returned. What about us? Are we willing to go the distance with persistence, patience and faith, knowing that the Lord will grant what is best for us?
