Focus on the Sunday Gospel to Celebrate the 4th Sunday in Lent.
Use this unit study to help teach children that miracles show God's power. This lesson is based on the miracle of healing Christ performed on the man born blind in St. John 9:1-41.
This lesson reminds us that Jesus is the Son of God who performed miracles under the authority of His heavenly Father. As He heals the man born blind, Christ shows pity, love, power, and obedience to His Father. Miracles can help to convert hearts, build faith, and make believers of those who witness them. However, in today’s Gospel, the Jewish leaders still do not believe that Jesus is the Christ, despite His restoring sight to the man born blind.
