MHFM: In John 9 we read about how Our Lord healed the man who had been born blind. When explaining what happened, the man who had been blind said: “I washed, and I see” (John 9:15). This also signifies that it is through the washing of water baptism that one receives spiritual sight. Hence baptism was called “illumination”.
John 9:15- “So the Pharisees again asked him how he had received his sight. And he said to them, ‘He put mud on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.’”
