Fr. Elias on the Gospel of today and how they relate to the Sacraments, starting with the anointing of David with oil by Samuel. And then to the giving of sight to the man born blind where Jesus uses mud to confer the miraculous cure. Thus the use of material things to give graces from God such as we get from the Sacraments like Baptism and Confirmation is very Biblical and these graces help us in the spiritual battle where we fight along side of Christ against the devil.

    Thank you Father. I have heard this story of course many times, but you opened my eyes as I heard new and enlightening things that I have not heard before. Our granddaughter is being confirmed May 3 2014. I was so moved by hearing your words that I am writing her to view this today. It is indeed "food for the soul."

    Blessings, judy
