Spring Training: How to See the World Through God’s Eyes | #1019

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 4th Sunday (A) The Sunday before Ash Wednesday, I warned people to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Little did I know that within four weeks the whole world would be turned upside-down. Dr. Li Wenliang was like the blind man who could see more clearly than the authorities, when he warned fellow doctors about an alarming new virus emerging in China.

Jesus performs an act of creation, making as it were ‘new eyes’ for the blind man. All of us need to see the world as God sees it. Follow these four simple steps: Acknowledge what you are experiencing, Relate it to Jesus, Receive his loving care for you, and Respond back to him. Keep doing this every day you will start seeing things with God’s eyes.
