While eyewear plays a big part in this week's feature attraction, not everybody needs it to get by. Case in point, one Quincy Magoo. Can't see his hand in front of his face but always comes out smelling like a rose anyway. What's his secret?

"We walk by faith, not by sight" quotes the Catechism, "we perceive God as "in a mirror, dimly" and only "in part." A man of faith has more ways of seeing than just with his eyes. He has "the interior helps of the Holy Spirit, who moves the heart and converts it to God, who opens the eyes of the mind and 'makes it easy for all to accept and believe the truth."

If Magoo really is an "eyes of the mind" type guy, then maybe he's the only one in the cartoon who truly sees things as they really are while everyone else constantly trips over their own selfish desires which they misconceive as reality.

The Matrix totally ripped off Mr. Magoo.
