Yesterday we saw the prayers of Sarah being answered. Today, it is the prayer of Tobit. But was the most important prayer really the regaining of his sight? Or, was it rather the realization that his son had embraced the faith so important to him? Was it because he could see physically, or was it that he could see with pride how the grace of God was active in his own son’s life, and indeed in his own life?
Realization of the presence of God is amazing indeed. Life in fact, seems so much clearer when we can see the events of our lives unfold not simply with our physical eyes, but also with the eyes of our soul. It is this type of sight that often accounts for our ability to prioritize, to make important, and to determine the path of holiness which leads us to God.
