31st Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle C

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

31st Sunday Bulletin Insert for October 30, 2022.

Description: Notice the determination of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10 on the 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time. His view of Jesus was obstructed, but that didn’t stop him from seeing Jesus. He had an obstacle (the crowd) and a handicap (his short stature), but he refused to allow any of this to prevent him from reaching his goal of getting a clear view of Jesus. In fact, Zacchaeus was so eager to experience Jesus that he did something drastic: He climbed a tree! 

This bulletin insert invites your parishioners to reflect on the question: Do you see Jesus in the Eucharist at Mass? If Zacchaeus’ reaction to Christ’s presence isn’t our reaction, it means our view is still partly obstructed. We need to climb higher. We all have handicaps – prejudices, misconceptions, bad training, spiritual laziness, fears and doubts, and so on – which obstruct our view of Jesus.
