Wednesday of the Eighteenth Week in Ordinary Time : Humility + Faith = Mercy

Gospel Reading : Matthew 15:25-27

But the woman came and did him homage, saying, “Lord, help me.” He said in reply, “It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs.” She said, “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters.”
 
My most merciful Lord, I am unworthy.
Help me to see that.
Help me to see that I do not deserve Your grace in my life.
But in that humble truth, may I also recognize Your abundance of mercy and never fear to call upon You for mercy.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Amen.
