Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” (John 9:3)

One might ask, “Did the blind man suffer for the glory of God?” Tell me, what wrong did he suffer? Rather, I assert that he not only did not suffer but that he even received benefits from his blindness. Because he recovered the sight of the eyes within. What were the Jews profited by their eyes? They incurred the heavier punishment, being blinded even while they saw. And what injury did this man have because of his blindness? For through his blindness, he recovered his sight. As, then, the evils of the present life are not evils, so neither are the good things good. Sin alone is evil, but blindness is not an evil… As some excellent architect may build part of a house and leave the rest unfinished, so that for those who do not believe he [the architect] may prove, by means of that remnant, that he is author of the whole; so also God joins together and completes our body, as it were a house decayed, healing the withered hand, bracing the palsied limbs, straightening the lame, cleansing the lepers, raising up the sick, making sound the crippled, recalling the dead from death, opening the eyes that were closed, or adding them when they were not even present; all which things, being blemishes arising from the infirmity of our nature, He by correcting showed His power. – St. John Chrysostom
