20th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME August 20, 2017

"O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done

for you as you wish." This woman was an outside.

She was a Canaanite, not an Israelite, and as

such she would have been considered ritually

unclean. But she approached Jesus nonetheless

and asked for His help. And Jesus used this

opportunity to teach His disciples an important

lesson.

In the verses directly before today's passage,

Jesus had told Peter that what defiles a person

comes from the Heart, not from ignoring external

Houston, Texas, Aug 11, 2017 CNA/EWTN News.- “We are many parts, but we are all one body,” says the refrain of a popular '80s Church hymn, based on the words of 1 Cor. 12:12.

we can rather then giving up because of fear or
uncertainty.
