You're Nothing but a Worthless Dog - Gospel Reflections ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 20, 2014 Don't let doubt about who you are or who you were meant to be keep you locked up. Sunday's Gospel from the Book of Matthew always bothered me. Here you have a woman begging the Lord for help, begging, not for herself, but for the healing of her daughter. And you have the Lord Jesus ignoring her and then brushing her off with this: I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. I have read this passage many times and thought, "How hurtful that ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/youre-nothing-but-worthless-dog-gospel.html

The Name of God VOX NOVA - August 20, 2014 A lovely quote from Pope Benedict, from the folks at the Daily Gospel online. They chose it to accompany the reading for the 7th Sunday of Easter, John 17:1-11a. I have highlighted a couple sentences that really struck me because I had been recently reading about St. Bernadine of Siena and thinking about devotion to the Holy Name. What, then, does "the name of God" mean?… The Revelation of John speaks of the adversary of God, the "beast". This beast, the power opposed ...http://vox-nova.com/2014/08/20/the-name-of-god/

Dogs and the Eucharist FR RAY BLAKE'S BLOG - August 19, 2014 ... is perhaps the image we have from last Sunday's OF Gospel. It's is a nice image, but actually of course it is not meant to be nice, it is supposed to shock us. Jews in the Old Testament often used dogs as an image of apostasy or of idol worshiping Gentiles, it is an image Jesus takes directly from scripture. Dogs are unclean, a source defilement. Jesus wasn't sent to the 'dogs' but to the children of the Israel. The women makes the image even ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2014/08/dogs-and-eucharist.html

Liturgical Amnesia THE CURT JESTER - August 18, 2014 ... reinforce what the Gospel was for that date in the Liturgical Year. But if called to reference the Old Testament reading I would be very hard-pressed to recall what it was. That also goes for the New Testament letters. This is really embarrassing as I really do want to be able to reflect on these passages and to discern the reason the Church picked out the three readings in some connected theme. So I am not very happy with having liturgical amnesia regarding the readings and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/lr2U1QmsBAQ/

Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, August 17, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 17, 2014 Readings for Sunday, August 17, 2014 I remember when (a few years ago) I read this passage from Matthew's gospel to my students for the first time. A few students who were really listening were surprised and perplexed by Jesus' response to the Canaanite woman. Not fully understanding the passage myself, I had to go do some research in order to help them. I understood that the Jews would see this woman as lesser than – or unworthy – because her people were the ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/17/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-august-17-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 15:4-23 THE DOME BLOG - August 17, 2014 Matthew 15:4-23 (20th Sunday in Ordinary Time) The Gospel for this Sunday is the story of the woman whose daughter was possessed by a demon. The mother approaches Jesus and asks him to heal her daughter. Her request was simple and respectful. However, Jesus ignored her! She was a woman and a Canaanite. This was a segment of the population that were seen by the Jews as the "lowest of the low." Thus, it was expected that Jesus as a Jew should not even speak to her. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-154-23.html

Navarre Bible Commentary:20th Sunday in Ordinary Time JOE CATHOLIC - August 17, 2014 ... Jews; later on he will charge his apostles to preach the Gospel to pagans. St Paul, in his missionary journeys, also adopted the policy of preaching in the first instance to the Jews (Acts 13:46). 15:25–28. This dialogue between Jesus and the woman is especially beautiful. By appearing to be harsh he so strengthens the woman's faith that she deserves exceptional praise: "Great is your faith!" Our own conversation with Christ should be like that: "Persevere in prayer. ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/08/navarre-bible-commentary-20th-sunday-in.html

Jews, Christians and Who Can Be Saved? (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 17, 2014 ... need Jesus? Absolutely not! Everyone – without exception – needs Jesus. Remember what he said: "No one comes to the Father except through me." So we still must share our faith with everyone who has not been baptized, and with those who have been, but are not Catholic. For that matter, we share our faith with fellow Catholics, to help them be faithful. That's part of being a "light to the nations." But never forget that the Jewish People are part of God's Plan. There is no place for ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2014/08/jews-christians-and-who-can-be-saved.html

While on Others Thou Art Calling, Do Not Pass Me By. A Homily for the 20th Sunday of the Year ARCHDIOCESE OF WASHINGTON - August 16, 2014 Today's gospel teaches us to pray always and not lose heart.

Homily Notes 20th Sunday Year A: Christianity Is Not About Being Nice! HUMBLEPIETY - August 16, 2014 ... Jesus in the gospels is that he does not tolerate lip service. Ask the Pharisees what he thinks of that brood of vipers! Jesus challenges people to come to faith, to turn from sin, to set their sights on the Kingdom of Heaven, both here and now, and in the future too. When the woman responds in faith, Jesus responds in kind. A healing happens, one that is life changing and affirming. So it is not niceness that Jesus wants from us but action, faith, justice. When we think about the world today ...http://humblepiety.blogspot.com/2014/08/homily-notes-20th-sunday-year.html

Humility: Melting the Heart of God THE WORD FOR THE WORLD - August 16, 2014 ... thought you needed him the most? The Canaanite woman in the gospel this Sunday shows us how we can melt the heart of a God and win his favour. The woman was from Canaan; in other words she was a foreigner for the Jews. When Jesus was passing by that pagan territory the woman must have heard about him and shouted " Lord, Son of David, have pity on me; my daughter is tormented by a devil." The woman acknowledged Jesus as a Jew by referring to him as the Son of David. It was very ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/KJEIY/~3/rd7QTdWtrlc/humility-melting-heart-of-god.html

As he stated later, "Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted" (Matt 23:13). The Canaanite woman, humble is spirit, had no need for silver spoons, being blessed beyond measure with divine love and communion with God.

Macro and Micro Salvation HEART FOR GOD - August 16, 2014 ... micro in a technological context of some kind, but today's Gospel brings these two concepts into a biblical and theological focus. Just to be clear, "macro" refers to the largest scale and "micro" to the smallest scale. If you think about it, both of these are the object of God's concern in the Scriptures. The Psalmist juxtaposes the two when he writes: When I look at the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have established; what is man that you ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2014/08/macro-and-micro-salvation.html

'Lord, Help Me.' Sunday Reflections, 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 15, 2014 ... Scotland, South Africa) Gospel Matthew 15:21-28 ( New Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition , Canada) Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a demon." But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, "Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us." He answered, "I was ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/lord-help-me-sunday-reflections-20th.html
