GOD WITH US ON LINE CATECHETICAL RESOURCES – 35TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST & THE SUNDAY OF THE CANAANITE WOMAN: https://godwithusonline.org/reflections/the-sunday-of-the-canaanite-woman-ruthenian/

This Sunday’s Gospel reading is Matthew 15:21-28, in which Jesus leaves the region of Galilee and went north into the region of Tyre and Sidon. This was His first visit to a Gentile nation. While there, Jesus is approached by a Canaanite woman, who sought help for her demon-possessed daughter.  Though the disciples wanted her to go away, her faith persisted and she refusd to be deterred, and Jesus Christ rewarded her for it. He states that her faith was great and that her daughter was healed. Thus, great faith, commitment, and courage brings great rewards. The apostles received an important lesson.
