The Offering
Offertory Thought: Matthew 15:21-28
Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. A
Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord,
Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed
and suffering terribly.” Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples
came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying after
us.” He answered, “ I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” The
woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!,” she said. He
replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the
dogs.” “Yes, it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that
fall from their master’s table.” Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you
have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was
healed from that very hour.
