August 17th 2014 – Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Christian Affirmations and Personalized Bible Scriptures

Listen Here! A Foreigner’s Faith 

Readings:
 Isaiah 56:1, 6-7 
Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8 
Romans 11:13-15, 29-32
 Matthew 15:21-28 
Most of us are the foreigners, the non-Israelites, about whom today’s First Reading prophesies. 

 Coming to worship the God of Israel, we stand in the line of faith epitomized by the Canaanite woman in today’s Gospel. Calling to Jesus as Lord and Son of David, this foreigner shows her great faith in God’s covenant with Israel.

 Jesus tests her faith three times.
