Forgiveness and Healing

Readings for August 20, 2017

Isaiah 56:1,6-7; Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8; Romans 11:13-15, 29-32; Matthew 15:21-28

Suggested Reflection Questions

  • The first reading talks about “ a house of prayer for all peoples.” How can we become more engaged with people from different faith backgrounds?
  • The second reading discusses God’s forgiveness. When was a time you forgave someone? Was it hard? How did you feel after?
  • In the Gospel, Jesus heals a girl who is tormented by a demon. When was a time that God made you feel better?
