"O woman, great is your faith!

Brother Ed Arambasich, OFM, fire chaplain

Pray for the day:

God of Love, everyone should have someone to care about and depend on.  I pray today for those who feel alone and unwanted.  Give them strength in times of weakness.  Lift their hearts so they can have hope for brighter days.  May they find happiness and friendship.  Amen.

Matthew 15:21-28

At that time Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out,
"Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David!
My daughter is tormented by a demon."
But he did not say a word in answer to her.
His disciples came and asked him,
"Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us."
He said in reply,
"I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
But the woman came and did him homage, saying, "Lord, help me."
He said in reply,
"It is not right to take the food of the children
and throw it to the dogs."
She said, "Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps
that fall from the table of their masters."
Then Jesus said to her in reply,
"O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish."
And her daughter was healed from that hour.

Refection question: How do I help others heal from pain, hunger, and loneliness?
