Luke 19: 1-10
He came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.
Now a man there named Zacchaeus,
who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man,
was seeking to see who Jesus was;
but he could not see him because of the crowd,
for he was short in stature. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus,
who was about to pass that way.
When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said to him,
“Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.”
And he came down quickly and received him with joy.
When they all saw this, they began to grumble, saying,
“He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.”
But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
“Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor,
and if I have extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over.”
And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house
because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.
For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”
The Proof of Repentence
Explore It! Today's gospel tells the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus, the tax collector. Jesus invites himself into the home of Zacchaeus, and through Jesus' outreach, Zacchaeus promised to generously share his wealth with the poor.
Connect It! Zacchaeus put great effort into seeking Jesus, he climbed the sycamore tree so that he is able to see Jesus. We, too, must seek Jesus eagerly and invite Him into our life, so that just like Zacchaeus, we may learn to live generously and lovingly towards others.
Reflect It! A sinner like Zacchaeus receives the attention of Jesus and was changed for the better. You may find yourself in need to reconnect with Jesus, how have you sincerely invited Jesus into your home so that you may receive his mercy and forgiveness?
Live it! Everyone needs a bit of encouragement from time to time. Like Jesus, we must encourage ourselves to insert our life into the lives of those rejected or on the margins of our society so that they may also experience the mercy of God.
Remember It! “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

Trong tuần này, xin tất cả các thành viên chúng ta tiếp tục dâng lên Mẹ Chí Thánh những bông hoa kính mừng để tỏ lòng yêu mến Mẹ. Xin quý trưởng thúc đẩy các em cùng nhau làm việc tôn kính Đức Mẹ. Không có việc gì đẹp cho bằng dạy cho các em biết tỏ lòng yêu Mẹ Maria, vì đó sẽ là những hành trang các em mang đi suốt cuộc đời của mình. Thánh Bonavêntura đã dạy như sau: "sốt sắng sùng kính Đức Mẹ là dấu Chúa ban phần rỗi cho ta, chính Mẹ Maria đầy ơn phúc sẽ giúp chúng ta trong giờ lâm tử."
