Thought for the day In today’s Gospel, Jesus changes his mind! How is that possible? Twice in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus limits his ministry to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 10:6; 15:24). In today’s story, however, a very feisty woman, clearly not a daughter of Abraham, with her urgency and her witty retort, brings Jesus to recognise the needs of those beyond the ethnic confines of the Jewish people. They are ordinary human beings too, just as much in need of the Good News of the Kingdom as anyone else. Prayer We believe and we know, O God, that you love the human race, without make any distinction of persons or rank. Inspire us to see you in everyone we meet, for all are your children and you are the father of us all. KOM

Jesus compared the kingdom of Heaven
To a net cast into the sea which catches all kinds of fish.
When it is full, the fisherman haul it ashore,
and sorts out the good fish from the worthless fish.
The good he keeps, the worthless he throws away.
In a sense, all of us are fishers.
Each day we cast our net into he sea of life.
At the end of the day we have a catch,
sometimes small, sometimes large.
May we take the time to sift through the catch.
And may you, Lord, give us the wisdom to know,
what to keep and what to throw away.
