You may go your way; the demon has left your daughter

1Cor 13:1-3: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, thank you very much for your demonstration of love in Jesus. Help us to love as he did for us - selflessly, sacrificially, and consistently so others may know of your love through our actions. In Infant Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 7:24-30)
Jesus admires a Gentile woman for her unrelenting faith and for her affectionate love. She made the unhappiness of her child her own and she was willing to undergo rebuff in order to get healing for her loved one. She also had strong persistence. Her faith grew in contact with the being of Jesus. She began with a request and she ended on her knees in reverential prayer to the living God. No one who yet sought Jesus with faith - whether Jew or Gentile – was declined his help. Do you seek Jesus with eager for faith? What did Jesus mean by the phrase "throwing bread to the dogs"? The Jews frequently spoke of the Gentiles with conceit and insolence as "unclean dogs" since the Gentiles were disqualified from God's covenant and goodwill with Israel. For the Greeks the "dog" was a sign of dishonor and was used to explain a shameless and audacious woman. Matthew's gospel records the expression do not give dogs what is divine Jesus, no doubt, spoke with a smile fairly than with an insult because this woman straight away responds with wit and faith - "even the dogs eat the crumbs".
