Abstract

[...]we should take seriously Jesus' words to the blind Bartimaeus: 'What do you want me to do for you?' This question is emblematic of the human quest for meaning. [...]the indwelling Spirit gives a new energy and power to humanity to realize the plans of God. [...]the Risen Jesus' presence in his community points to a reconciliation of the unresolved tension of the inner/outer dimensions of experience, of the relationship between the personal and the communal and a, finally, clarification of what is authentic and inauthentic in a way of life centered on God revealed in Jesus.
