Here is another difficulty. Was it not possible that the glory of God be shown without this man’s punishment [of blindness]. Certainly, it was possible for God’s glory to be shown without the man being blind. Yet we read, “that God’s glory should be revealed in this man.” One might ask, however, “Did he actually suffer wrong for the glory of God?” Tell me what wrong did he suffer from? For what if God had never willed to make him at all? But I assert that he even received benefit from his blindness! Because from it he recovered the sight of the eyes within. What were the Jews profited by their [physical] eyes? They incurred the heavier punishment, being blinded even while they saw. And what injury did this man have by his blindness? For through his blindness, he recovered his sight. Similarly, the evils of this present life are not actually evils, so neither are the good things actually good. Sin alone is an evil, but blindness is not an evil. – St. John Chrysostom
