August 3, 2016 – Drawing Close to Our Lord

Did Our Lord treat the Canaanite woman brusquely when he said: “It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs”? (Mt 15: 6) We would be well advised to consider the whole story. For example, we see how through her conversation with Jesus this woman is moved from soliciting his help to accepting him as her master, her Lord. It is an important transition and it is at this moment that her daughter is healed. It is at moments like this that we are healed too.
