TWENTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A)

GOOD NEWS!   Is 56:1, 6–7 / Rom 11:13–15, 29–32 / Mt 15:21–28


    I watched a friend tell a group of children the story of the good shepherd. On the floor in front of him were wooden sheep, a shepherd figurine, and a fenced-in area. He had placed one of the wooden sheep a little bit away from the scene.

    Before he got halfway through the story, one child raised her hand and asked why the sheep was by itself. He explained that the sheep was lost and asked what she would do about it. She looked for a minute, then picked up the little figure and returned it to the fenced area with the other sheep. He used that as the basis for his story, pointing out that Jesus cares for us the same way and will not leave us out of the flock.

    In today’s readings, we celebrate God’s love for all people— including all who raise their voices in claim to the love of God, those who are not like us, and those who are strange, disenfranchised, and annoying.

    The woman in the Gospel was not Jewish, and the disciples tried to keep her away. But in her faith, she cried to Jesus—and he heard her.

    Matthew says that after her, many Gentiles (non-Jews) came to Jesus. He welcomed and healed them. He also fed them as easily as he fed the 5,000 Jews whose story we’ve already heard.

    We might see these strangers as unloving and unlovable, but God isn’t bound by what we see. Their faith, too, is a conduit for God’s grace and compassion.

    The little girl who saw a sheep by itself was moved with compassion. So is God for all who seek him.
