The "light" is one of the original symbols of the Holy Scriptures. It announces salvation to God. It is not without reason that the light was the first to be created to put an end to the darkness of chaos (Gen 1,3-5). Here she is profession of faith author of Psalms: "The Lord is my light and my salvation, di chi avrò paura?” (Up 28,1). E il profeta dice: “Alzati, Gerusalemme, rivestiti di luce, perché viene la tua luce, the glory of Lord has risen upon you " (Is 60,1). We should not be surprised if the  St. John's Gospel refers to Jesus the symbol of light. Already the his prologue tells of God's Word, del Logos: “In lui era la vita, is the life was the light of men; la luce splende nelle tenebre, bad darkness has not overcome it " (Gv 1,4-5). The light is what enlightens the darkness, ciò che libera dalla paura che ispirano le tenebre, what It gives an orientation and allows to recognize the destination and the route. Without light, non c’è vita.
The story of the healing of the blind man is a "history of signs" feature of St. John. It highlights that Jesus is "the Light of the World " (in. 5, cf. 8, 12), he is the revelation in person and  God's salvation – offerte a tutti.
