When the Lord was going through Jericho to Jerusalem for His Holy Passion, a very noble and notable man of Jericho, Zacchaeus, desired to see the Lord but was unable to do so because he was “little of stature.” So Zacchaeus made himself a laughing stock and climbed up a sycamore tree to be able to see the Lord. He suffered shame because of his desire to see the Lord, and the Lord noticed him. And not only did He notice him but He spoke to him saying, “Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at your house” (Luke 19:5). The Lord visited his house because He saw Zacchaeus’ suffering of shame as a “kinship” with Him. Zacchaeus put himself in the humble Way of the Lord, voluntarily suffering shame, and so it was unavoidable that he should meet the Lord. Christ visited Zacchaeus and from the moment of the Lord’s visitation, his heart was enlarged and he was restored to spiritual health, and straightway desired to restore every injustice he had committed. Zacchaeus, by putting himself in the Way of the Lord and bearing a little shame for His sake, found the Lord a companion, a guest in his house, and therefore his heart was enlarged to embrace all people. So, when we put ourselves in the humble Way of our Lord, and we learn to be humble, we become partakers of His gift, and this gift enlarges the heart, and then we find our true destiny. – Archimandrite Zacharias
