We really need to listen to John the Baptist. He offers us hope and assures us once again that the reign of God is here. He has some great advice for us: “Reform your lives!” he tells us. If we work hard on this, we can and will become better people and that will bring about a better world.

In his letter to the Romans, St. Paul is very helpful. He gives us some attainable goals. He tells us to live honorably and to let Jesus help us in our efforts to love one another. The Bible is filled with promises made by God and He has kept every one of them. St. Paul urges us to let the past be past; and to let go of past wounds, past anxieties, past hurts, past fears and doubts, so that we can live freely in the present time and hope for a better and safer future because God kept His promises in the past and we can trust God to keep the promises He makes today.

What difference does Jesus make? For those who believe, Jesus makes all the difference, between death and life, darkness and light, hell and heaven. We know the Good Thief had come to believe in Jesus because of his dying request, “Remember me when you come into Your kingdom.

The people of Jesus’ day were concerned about their future and sought some reassurance from Him. Jesus gave them one simple response. Live faithfully now and you will be prepared for whatever the future brings. His words are still as valid today. Living daily life in a faithful way means that we choose to embrace whatever comes our way, and live each moment without backing away.

We will soon come to the end of the church year, and the focus for these last three weeks before Advent is on some very weighty concerns, the end of the world.

Today, I want to talk about something we should always be concerned about, and that is our destiny, heaven. Heaven is being with God, face to face, and forever.

Jesus invites Himself to dinner, and something marvelous happens to Zacchaeus. 

Like Zacchaeus, we can take the chance, invite Jesus in, and watch Him do a new arrangement of our lives.

     We are just beginning the month of November. Memories of summer are already fading. It is a time when we become aware of more darkness and less light because the sun is setting earlier. November is the month when we remember in a special way our deceased family and friends. Flowers and trees…

Dear friends, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.” (Luke 19:10) Jericho is where our Lord meets Zacchaeus. This encounter encapsulates all the teachings of our Lord that He has been giving us in the parables we have been listening to in the gospels of recent Sundays….

If we want to be close to God, we must start by being honest with ourselves and God, see ourselves as God sees us, with all our flaws and failings and sins. One thing we have in common is that we all need God’s mercy. The good news is that God loves us and wants to forgive us, but we have to ask.
