The blind see again, the lame walk, lepers are made clean

Gospel text (Luke 7,19-23): The disciples of John gave him all this news. So he called two of them and sent them to the Lord with this message, «Are you the one we are expecting, or should we wait for another?». These men came to Jesus and said, «John the Baptist sent us to ask you: ‘Are you the one we are to expect, or should we wait for another?’».
At that time Jesus healed many people of their sicknesses or diseases; He freed them from evil spirits and He gave sight to the blind. Then He answered the messengers, «Go back and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind see again, the lame walk, lepers are made clean, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the poor are given good news. Now, listen: Fortunate are those who encounter me, but not for their downfall».
