WE REMEMBER AND PRAY  FOR THOSE WHOSE 1STANNIVERSARY OCCURS:
Tony O’Keeffe
 
Jesus, does not pass by the tree; he notices the little man up a tree. Jesus initiates the contact
and calls Zacchaeus by name. He does not shout condemnation at Zacchaeus, which might only
have served to drive him farther up the tree. Jesus does not exact repentance from him; rather,
he overlooks the sins of Zacchaeus and invites him down from his lonely perch. “Hurry, because
I must stay at your house today.
Zacchaeus is delighted to welcome Jesus to his house. The crowd, on the other hand, are
outraged. But Jesus is more interested in the outcast than the outraged. The crowd is
transfixed by the sins Zacchaeus has committed; Jesus sees beyond the sins to the person that
Zacchaeus can become. And Jesus’ generous attitude to the tax-collector has good results:
Zacchaeus does make public amends for his wrongdoing.
Jesus does not demand repentance from Zacchaeus before eating with him. The sequence is
important: Jesus overlooks the wrongdoing of Zacchaeus in the hope that he will repent.
Because of Jesus’ attitude to sinners in welcoming them and eating with them, Jesus gives
them the opportunity for repentance in an atmosphere of acceptance. That is why Zacchaeus
comes down from the tree to face Jesus. That is why we will all come down from our lonely
perches to face the one who loves us and wants us to repent. The story continues to be told.
