O woman, great is your faith!

“‘O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.’ And her daughter was healed from that hour.” (MT 15: 28) 

Extremely difficult dialogue: being rejected and compared with dogs didn’t help. But she wasn’t asking for herself, she fought for her daughter. And her strength and wisdom came from love; love which knows how to forget about oneself. Like our gift of self, which need to be free to be creative and joyful.

“A great prophet has arisen in our midst and God has visited his people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
