Homily: The Fourth Sunday in Lent - The Second Scrutiny

The 4th Sunday of Lent is also called Laetare Sunday – taken from the Latin word to Rejoice!  It is time to rejoice, for Lent is half over…or better put, half of Lent is still before us.  So how do we use that time? 
Perhaps we should be following steps of our brothers and sisters who are preparing to be fully received into the Church this Easter Vigil.  For this Sunday is their Second Scrutiny.  What does that mean?  What does that call us to? And how does the Gospel story of Jesus healing the blind man tie it all together?
