Meeting Jesus changes Zacchaeus’ life. St. John Paul II sees in it a model of how God’s Mercy comes to seek us. And how the Sacrament of Reconciliation can transform us.
- Zacchaeus is greedy and corrupt.
- God takes the first steps to him.
- Zacchaeus responds with joy and justice.
- Conversion calls us to repair the damage our sin caused.
- Balance between severity and laxity.
- ” LORD and lover of souls.”
