With age-old love I have loved you

Greetings on this the Wednesday of the Eighteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: JER 31:1-7; JER 31:10, 11-12AB, 13; MT 15:21-28
Notes: Trusting the Lord is a faith maturing.

  • Trusting He will give us what we need.
  • Trusting He will give us what He promises.

Our readings today:

  1. In the first reading, Jeremiah recalling the defeat of the Assyrians as divine liberation.
  2. In the responsorial trusting he will gather them together again.
  3. In the gospel portion today, trusting him even when we are a foreigner to him.

Remember: With age-old love I have loved you.

First reading
The LORD has delivered his people,
the remnant of Israel.

Responsorial Psalm
The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.

Alleluia Verse
A great prophet has arisen in our midst
and God has visited his people.

Gospel Portion
At that time Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out,
“Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David!
My daughter is tormented by a demon.”

Then Jesus said to her in reply,
“O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish.”
And her daughter was healed from that hour.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
