Short homily for Tuesday of the 33rd Week in Ordinary Time Cycle I

Theme: From anonymity to prominence

By: Fr. Walter Ihejirika


Homily for Tuesday November 16 2021

Anonymity is the state of being unknown, nameless and unidentifiable. Many factors bring about this state: it could be by choice, it could be socio-economic standing, or because of person’s physical appearance. In the swarming crowd of Jericho, Zacchaeus was anonymous because of his height as we read in our gospel today (Lk 19:1-10). But he made efforts – ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree and that made him the star of the day, the only one in the crowd whose name was mentioned by Jesus: When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said, “Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.” . Dear friends, as we face God this morning, I pray that like Zacchaeus, your honest efforts today will lift you up from lowliness to greatness, from any form of anonymity to prominence. Have an elevated day.
