Today’s reading of the Holy Gospel tells us about the Canaanite woman who cried out to the Lord for mercy. The Lord puts her to the test and it is interesting how she reacted.
She persevered, with faith in God, for the Lord to heal her daughter who was possessed by a demon.
In today's Gospel, we learn about faith, patience, and perseverance.
Our efforts at Christians seeking salvation must echo that of the Canaanite woman so that we, too, might hear the words that the Lord spoke to her: “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done to you as you desire.” Amen!
