Friends of the Rosary:

Following yesterday’s story of the pagan Canaanite woman (Mt 15:21-28), who was granted the cure for her daughter because of her deep faith, we continue reflecting on the mystery and power of prayer.

Very often our specific requests to God are not for our good. In that case, the eternal God might not grant what would result in our disadvantage.

However, if our prayer is sincere and persevering, we shall always receive an answer — one that is better than what we asked for.

We shouldn’t doubt God’s mercy. Who are we to question God’s mercy?

The earthly death of our loved one ended up bringing out virtues in us that they would otherwise never have had the occasion to practice. We cultivate these virtues for eternal life.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
