(St. Josephine Bakhita, Virgin)
A non-Jewish, Gentile woman pleaded with Jesus to heal her daughter. He said to her, “Let the children be fed first. For it is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs.” She replied and said to him, “Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s scraps.” Mk_7:24-30
Even us dogs!
No minced meat! Jesus called a spade a spade! You know, beloved, some days we just might feel like that dog eating the scraps under the table. But IF we can maintain our faith in God, our faith in Jesus, He will see to it that we are fed as well. As a matter of fact – we just might be invited to feast at His banquet.
Keep the Faith, beloved! Jesus will see us through!
