But Jesus did not say a word in answer to her

“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 Jesus did not say a word in answer to her.” (MT 15: 22-23)

This Canaanite woman gave us an example of what to do when Our Lord doesn’t answer our prayers, looks like He is ignoring our requests, and even when somebody is also asking Him to help us, He is not doing anything. Today Our Lord shows us what we can do, what we can learn from mothers, how important is to be humble, with a distance to ourselves, and intelligence combined with persistence.

“Jesus proclaimed the Gospel of the kingdom and cured every disease among the people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
