Notice the way in which Zacchaeus confessed his sin.

Dec 27, 2021

Notice the way in which Zacchaeus confessed his sin.

He did not say: “Lord, I am a sinful man!”,

or “Avarice is my sickness!”

No; but, showing the fruits of repentance,

he thus confessed his sin and his sickness: “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor.”

is not this a clear confession that riches are his passion?

“And if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.”

Is not this a clear confession that his riches were acquired in a sinful manner?

He did not, before this, say to the Lord: “I am a sinner, and I repent.”

He confessed this silently to the Lord in his heart,

and the Lord silently received his confession and repentance.
