Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 3:2-3, 4-5, 6-7
Gospel: Luke 19:1-10

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 19:1-10)
Jesus often "dropped-in" at unexpected times and he frequently visited the "unsolicited" the poor, the lame, and even public considered as sinners like Zacchaeus, the tax collector! Tax collectors were reviled and treated as outcasts, no hesitation because they over-charged people and collects great assets at the expense of others. Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector and was a lot hated by all the public. Why would Jesus single him out for the respect of staying at his home? He needed God's compassionate love and pardon. In his meeting with Jesus he starts more than he imagined achieving. He explains the depth of his regrets by deciding to give half of his goods to the poor and to use the other half for making compensation for fraud. Zacchaeus' witness included more than words. His change of heart resulted in a transformation of life, a change that the entire community could experience as authentic. The Lord Jesus is always ready to make his home with each one of us. Do we make room for him in our heart and in every area of our life?
