 31st Sunday of the Year, 31st Oct 2004

Would you believe it?

Conversions do happen even in the most unlikely ways.  It can be a sudden decision.  There are many examples in history where people suddenly turned back to God and his ways.

Zacchaeus seemed to have it made in worldly terms, but deep down something was missing and he was compelled to try and catch a glimpse of Jesus who was ‘passing through' Jericho.

Can you imagine his joy when Jesus, looking up the tree said, "come down quickly, I must stay at your house".

His life was never the same again and though he faced a rough road because people didn't believe him, he was sure that, "the Son of Man had come to seek out and save what was lost". (Lk 19:10)
