Gospel : Matthew 15:21-28
Memorial of Saint John Vianney
“O woman, great is your faith”
We are rejoicing in victory for our country’s first Olympic gold . Hidilyn expressed with utmost gratitude- “Grabe si God!” Long years of hard work, focus, perseverance to achieve a certain level of readiness . Yet. together with her friends, they prayed unceasingly . Like the woman who came out shouting at Jesus , “have mercy on me Lord”, “help me”! Then Jesus answered, “Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.”
Let us be persistent in our prayers and not let any distractions lose our focus . Continue knocking on heavens door. Trust that Jesus answers our prayer for our best . Amen!
