Jesus calls each of us and desires a genuine friendship with us

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” So he made haste and came down, and received him joyfully.

What if we said yes?

What if we were open to the possibility of something more?

What if we wanted to know more?

“People were made for happiness. Rightly, then, you thirst for happiness. Christ has the answer to this desire of yours.”

– Saint John Paul II
