“But the woman came and did Jesus homage, saying, ‘Lord help me.’ He said in reply, ‘It is not right to take the food of 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.’”
Imagine this Canaanite woman who asked yet again for her daughter to be healed.
What do you admire about her?
What would you like to ask her if you met her?
Heritage word—“What a great happiness is dear peace and domestic harmony.”
(Sr. Mary Aloysia, Foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
