Isaiah 56.1,6-8
Thus says the Lord: Maintain justice, and
do what is right, for soon my salvation will
and my deliverance be revealed.
And the foreigners who join themselves to
the Lord, to minister to him, to love the
name of the Lord, and to be his servants,
all who keep the sabbath, and do not
profane it, and hold fast my covenant—
these I will bring to my holy mountain,
and make them joyful in my house of
sacrifices will be accepted on my altar;
for my house shall be called a house of
prayer for all peoples. Thus says the Lord
God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel,
I will gather others to them besides those
already gathered.
This is the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God

Glory to you, O Lord
Matthew 15.21-28
Jesus left that place and went away to the
district of Tyre and Sidon. Just then a
Canaanite woman from that region came
out and started shouting, ‘Have mercy on
me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is
tormented by a demon.’ But he did not
answer her at all. And his disciples came
and urged him, saying, ‘Send her away, for
she keeps shouting after us.’ He answered,
‘I was sent only to the lost sheep of the
house of Israel.’ But she came and knelt
before him, saying, ‘Lord, help me.’ He
answered, ‘It is not fair to take the
children’s food and throw it to the dogs.’
