Is Zacchaeus considered a Saint?


#1

I was just wondering if Zacchaeus from Luke 19 is considered a saint. Anyone know?

Catholic.org has one but not sure if that was the same one.

I have found some info that say he (the tree climber) was one of the seventy. But it is not in tradition wether he left with the others at the teaching of the Eucharist or not.

The Orthodox and Greek Catholic celebrate his saint day the Sunday before lent.

Actually that is a liturgical commemoration because of the reading in the gospel. His actual feast day is April 20.
