The Sunday of the Last Judgement (Meatfare) is an annual invitation to honestly face our own need for God’s mercy and a clear revelation that we can’t put off dealing with these truths forever. But we live in a world where saying “Don’t judge me” is an easy tool to shut down the uncomfortable mirror of our own choices. Today, are you awake enough to learn “the right answer before the awesome judgement seat of Christ?”

What do you desire? If you ever get quiet enough in your soul to drill down to the most basic desire of your heart, you will know who you are! That’s why the Church gives us the story of Zacchaios as the very first hint of the work of Great Lent coming in the next several weeks. The Church prepares us for the work of Great Lent by first confronting us with a man who desired to see Christ more than anything else in his life. And his encounter with Christ changed him and his village forever.
