The Canaanite woman confessed her faith; she called upon Christ as her "Master" and Lord.

You and I, too, must confess our faith that the graces of salvation might grow within us, bringing the healing from sin that leads to eternal life. Our belief in the divine Savior is not merely a private matter but rightly finds its expression in word and action. "O great is your faith. Let it be done for you as you desire."

Meeting Christ in the Liturgy offers a reflection for the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
