08-17-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

August 17, 2014
(20th Sunday Ordinary Time A)
The woman, a foreigner, pleaded for Jesus to help her daughter.  Jesus replied, “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.”  Mt 15:21-28


How great then, is our faith, beloved?

Do we still hang on to it even when we might be surprised by the initial outcome of our requests?  When it might get worse instead of better?  When the solution is not immediately obvious?  When all the world seems to be against us?  “Wait a minute, God!  I’m your child too!  I may mot be the perfect saint.  But I am the clay in Your hands.  Strengthen me.  Mold me.  And I’ll hang on in faith.  For even the dogs deserve the scraps.  We LOVE You.”

“Let it be done for you according to your wish”
– and God’s will!
