From Bethlehem to Rosewood

January 1, 2023


Jesus showed us the way when he healed the servant of a Roman centurion (Luke 7:5-13) and helped a Canaanite woman from the district of Tyre and Sidon (Matthew 15:21-28). Since he was familiar with suffering, he was never afraid to show compassion to people in need, even if they were outside of his religious or social or ethnic group. The Letter to the Hebrews says that because Jesus “himself was tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested” (2:18).
