Tuesday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave recounts how he lost his reader sunglasses while on a recent trip, and it was hard to see certain things. He connects this to how the Holy Spirit allows us to view our world differently. However, just like putting on glasses, we have to choose to put on the Holy Spirit and see with the eyes of God. Preached at St. Paul the Apostle Church, New York City on 08-30-22
