Even the rich can be saved November 3 2019 XXXI Sunday of Ordinary Time Dear brothers and sisters, the passage of the Gospel of Luke that we will listen on Sunday, November 3, which tells us of the episode of the conversion of Zacchaeus, Chief of the Publicans and rich, while, on the one hand, makes us understand the reason for his profound unhappiness, and, in general, that of all those who trust only in richness, on the other hand makes us understand what "power" Jesus uses to melt, so to speak, his heart of ice. Zacchaeus could not understand why Jesus, despite being poor and insignificant from the point of view of "human logic", used to receive so much success, attention, consensus, admiration and love ... Just what he lacked! A lack that had made his heart harden and ruthless towards his brothers and sisters. It is the encounter with the gaze of Jesus full of the light of God that transforms Zacchaeus In fact, what the gaze of Jesus conveys if not attention, respect, understanding, respect and the unheard beauty and purity of the love that God has for each of his creatures and, in particular, for those who are far away from Him and for that reason they need it more?
