Sunday Sermon: Homily for August 17, 2014

Matthew 15: 21-28


The outsider had it.

She persisted and Jesus responded.

The Canaanite woman would not take no for an answer.

Jesus listened to her.  He gave in to this outsider.  She begged Jesus to hear her.

He did.

Her persistent faith pressed on beyond her origin of birth.

God simply needs to hear me. 

Just ask God.

Although a sinner, I trust that God welcomes me and my request for life after death.

God will hear me also.
