‘Today, salvation has come to this house.’

Zacchaeus was small. Smallness is also a spiritual quality—poverty of spirit, meekness, purity of heart, a view of oneself before God which draws him to us as it draws us to him. An awareness of our own littleness makes us inventive in finding and, despite the derision of the crowd, climbing our own sycamore tree—that is, anything which will enable us to see Jesus.

It may be prayer, the sacraments, the scriptures, the service of others—in all of these Jesus may be seen. But, perhaps above all, it is our own littleness that will reveal to us God who is all that we are not, and is perfectly all that we are imperfectly.
