“‘Lord, help me!.’ The Canaanite woman’s plea is the cry of everyone who searches for love, acceptance, and friendship with Christ. It is the cry of so many people in our anonymous cities, the cry of so many of your own contemporaries, and the cry of all those martyrs who even today suffer persecution and death for the name of Jesus: ‘Lord, help me!’ It is often a cry which rises from our own hearts as well: ‘Lord, help me!’ Let us respond, not like those who push away people who make demands on us, as if serving the needy gets in the way of our being close to the Lord. No! We are to be like Christ, who responds to every plea for his help with love, mercy and compassion.”
~Pope Francis, homily excerpt, August 17, 2014
