Focus on Future Victories; Not on Previous Disappointments – Pentecost 11

“The Power of Persistent Faith. In this week’s Gospel reading, Jesus commends a woman for her persistent faith . . .a woman who kept on believing and following Christ, even after the disciples urged him to, “Send her away, she keeps crying after us”. We can be persistent in prayer too, while trusting that Jesus will lift us up . . .in due season.
