A Collect to be Transformed by the Love of Jesus

Lord Jesus, whose compassion and kindness have no limit, come into our homes and our lives that we would be transformed by the love you share and your willingness to draw us into relationship with you, through you who abides in perfect union and joy with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him. All who saw it began to grumble and said, “He has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner.” Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much.”‘ – Luke 19:5-8
