“Alteration or Transformation?” + 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time (Fr. Mike‘s Homily)

Zacchaeus knew that he was a bad man. What he didn’t know was if he could be different.

Too many of us come to Jesus with the idea that He is willing to change us and change our lives. But what happens when we want Him to merely offer cosmetic changes and He wants to make structural changes?
