Fr. James Rooney, O.P. gives a homily for a retreat based on the Journey of the Mind to God by St. Bonaventure. He preaches on today's Gospel on how we should relate to the wealth of the world. He relates this to the theme of the retreat and to the life of St. Martin of Tours who's memorial was on that day. On our journey to God we must be thankful for what God has given but not to be too attached to them so that we are free to love God for Himself and grow closer to Him. He also refers to the book Abandonment To Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre De Caussade.
