Every year I have to have my eyes checked. There is a history of glaucoma in my family, and so I need to be sure it is caught early if I develop it. There are so many aspects of the testing, but I leave more grateful for my eyesight. the real and important challenge is to make sure I give the same care to my sight spiritually. Do I look for God? Do I see God clearly? Do I look to live my life in the light, or in the darkness? If we allow Jesus to cure our blindness, then we will be sure to see the light of his presence in all we do.
Homily given at Our Lady of Lourdes, University City, Missouri, on March 30, 2019.
