FAITH BOOK

31st SUNDAY -C- November 3, 2019

Wisdom 11: 22-12:2; Psalm 145; 2 Thessalonians 1: 11-22; Luke 19: 1-10

By Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

Jesus looked up and said to Zacchaeus:

"Zacchaeus, come down quickly,

For today I must stay at your house."

Reflection:

Jesus wants to come to the lost and confused parts of our lives. The parts we cover up and want to forget. Indeed, as he did with Zacchaeus, he wants to make a home with us in the very places we have closed up and locked away.

So, we ask ourselves:

  • Jesus found Zacchaeus out on a limb. What about us? Where are we?

  • Shall we invite him to come and gift us with the renewing gift of salvation he offered Zacchaeus?
