Wherefore the angels of God are singing: ‘Behold the heavenly tabernacle! Wherefore let us cry out to her with all our strength: ‘Joy to you, fulfillment of the Creator’s plan!

Even if, for the time being, I avoid the punishment of men, I shall never, whether alive or dead, escape the hands of the Almighty. When I call out to the LORD, he answers me from his holy mountain. I fear not the myriads of people arrayed against me on every side. 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.

When he was about to die under the blows, he groaned and said: “The Lord in his holy knowledge knows full well that, although I could have escaped death, I am not only enduring terrible pain in my body from this scourging, but also suffering it with joy in my soul because of my devotion to him.” This is how he died, leaving in his death a model of courage and an unforgettable example of virtue not only for the young but for the whole nation. When they 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 Gospel of the Lord.

They looked down on him because of his livelihood and his low stature.

Zacchaeus was therefore not special and not exactly a model for all of us to follow.
