Thirty First Sunday In Ordinary Time

One can imagine the joy o Zacchaeus, when Jesus sees him.  But the story does not end with this tax collector’s rejoicing.  The next verses tell of the change of heart that Zacchaeus experienced.  Not only did he say he would give half his possessions to the poor but he would repay fourfold anyone he had extorted.  Upon entering Jesus, Zacchaeus was able to detach from his possessions.  In the Word and Eucharist we meet Christ.  Have those encounters prompted you to detach from any possessions in any way?
