Lk 19: 1-10

Zacchaeus responds to Jesus’ inviting himself to eat at his house by repenting of his sin. How do I know he repented? I know because Zacchaeus freely offers to make reparation for his sinful practices. When we repent of our sins we ought to do everything we can to repair any of the damage our sin has done. This is not always possible or easy, but we should seriously look at the issue before we dismiss it too easily.

 

Holy Spirit, help me to walk the path of truth and justice to the best of my ability. Grant me the grace to honestly do penance for all my sins if at all possible.
