"To keep ourselves right in all things, we ought to hold fast to this principle: What seems to me to be white, I will believe to be black if the hierarchical Church thus determines it. For we believe that between Christ our Lord, the Bridegroom, and the Church, His Spouse, there is the one same Spirit who governs and guides us for the salvation of our souls..." - Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius [365]

Sunday Reflections: The Power of Faith

Jesus apparently refused to give heed to the request of the Canaanite Woman. But I think it was just a test. And the Woman surpassed the test! Her faith was put to the test but her faith ended up triumphant!

Many times in our lives our faith is being put to the test. Various concerns and troubles visit our day and seemingly those concerns and worries bog us down. But let us see the greater picture: those worries and concerns are just opportunities for us to deepen our Faith in the Lord.

Let us beg for the grace then to be truly steadfast in our faith and never to allow trials and tribulations to overwhelm us. May our faith in the Lord see us through in every trial in life. Amen.
