Heavenly Father, Mighty and Holy God, you are incredible - beyond our understanding. How you put up by all the foolishness, senseless and hurtful speech that we discharge is beyond our understanding. We ask that you send us the Holy Spirit to convict our heart and guard our lips from any form of unkind speech. We want our voice to be as much yours as our heart is. This we pray through Infant Jesus. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 15: 21-28)
What did Jesus signify by the expression "throwing bread to the dogs"? The Jews frequently spoke of the Gentiles with haughtiness and insolence as "unclean dogs" since the Gentiles was disqualified from God's covenant and favor by Israel. For the Greeks the "dog" was a symbol of disgrace and was used to explain a shameless and audacious woman. In Gospel of Matthew 7:6 says this expression: do not offer dogs what is holy. Jesus, no doubt, spoke by a smile rather than with an insult because this woman at once responds with humor and faith – "even the dogs eat the crumbs". Jesus praises a Gentile woman for her trust and for her love. She through the misery of her child her own and she was willing to undergo rebuff in order to get healing for her loved one. She also had unconquerable persistence. Her faith grew in contact with the person of Jesus. She began with a demand and she ended on her knees in respectful prayer to the existing God. No one who yet sought Jesus with faith – whether Jew or Gentile – was declined his help. Do we look for Jesus with expectant faith?

It is what comes out of the mouth that defiles...
