There are unexpected moments in life where someone touches our heart and shakes our certainties, causing us to re-examine prejudices and change our thinking. In today's Gospel, Jesus meets a Syrophoenician woman in the region of Tyre who challenges him to expand his understanding of his ministry. A long way from his home and familiar culture, Jesus receives a new perspective on dogs, tables, and God's expansive love for humanity.
