God is always at work in our lives… even when we cannot see it.
Jesus says he wants to stay at Zacchaeus’ house, a known chief tax collector and much hated. Staying at his house also means Jesus eats at table with him. No wonder people were upset.

Our prayers, many times, call God the Almighty… Yet God is also a Vulnerable God. Can we identify with a Mighty God or a God who is willing to be vulnerable? Fr. Eric breaks open this mystery.
God is not held to human boundaries. God goes beyond such barriers… Disciples are called to do the same.
Sin can blind us to God working in the midst of one’s illness. Forgiveness of sins in the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick happens.
Gates are common in our world and we how they operate… The Gate in today’s Gospel parable operates differently in the Kingdom of God.

Jesus accepts the invitation for a meal from those who are difficult. They watch Jesus closely to see if he makes a mistake. It is interesting that Jesus would say, “yes” to eat with difficult people… What does he teach us from doing this?
