Some extra goods for today! This icon is of Zacchaeus whom our meditation for today focuses on. To think of his desire as the key to his salvation, the key to his encounter with Jesus or as Alexander Schmemann puts it, "Zacchaeus desired the ‘right things;’ he wanted to see and approach Christ." This is a profound thought. As the reading today prompted us to think about, do we desire Jesus more than anything else? Answer this question IS the Lenten journey.
In icon above also depicts the women at the well. Jesus' words to her are key, "Those who drink of the water that I will give will never thirst again." Yes, Jesus is the one who fills our hungers and quenches our thirsts, who satisfies our desires!
