The Syrophoenician Woman’s Faith
Syrophoenician woman has a lot working against her, yet she persists. Jesus
acknowledges her persistence, her faith, and heals her daughter. There is an
important message not to be missed in this Gospel. This woman is a Gentile, an
outsider. Thus far Jesus’ ministry has been focused on the Jewish people. Through
this encounter he opens his ministry to all.
Prayer: I am reminded that you are the Creator of
all, the Lord of all, the Savior of all. We are one family in you.
