18th Week in Ordinary Time

After the Disciples told Jesus about the death of John the Baptist, the Lord withdrew by Himself in a boat. Jesus knew the sadness of mourning in His humanity. He later took Peter, James, and John up a mountain, where they witnessed the Lord in His heavenly glory. A Canaanite woman saw Jesus as the One who could heal her daughter. She didn’t want to take the spiritual food He offered away from any of God’s children but begged for just a table scrap of His mercy. Not everyone recognized Jesus as the Christ. Peter did, and the Lord gave him the keys to the Kingdom of heaven. What would people say if asked to describe who we are?
