Rom 11:13-15, 29-32

Mt 15:21-28

Communion: There Are Many Rooms

Recessional; A Rightful place


St. Elizabeth’s Guild request prayers for Vicki Gonzales and her family and loved ones coping with the critical illness of her son.


From the bulletin:

“The woman who was sick took a risk when she furtively touched the hem of Jesus’ cloak: she risked being ridiculed. But she risked: because she wanted to be cued, she wanted to reach Jesus. Remember the Canaanite woman: women risk more than men do! That’s true: they are better at it! We have to admit that…

Do I take risks, or do I follow Jesus according to the rules of my insurance company?…Do I put my faith in Jesus/ Do I entrust my life to Jesus? Am i walking behind Jesus even if sometimes i seem ridiculous? Or am I sitting still, watching what others are doing?
