Gospel Reflection

Brother Larry Stewart, CSC

For those of us who are now pilgrims on the Notre Dame Trail, this experience has called out of us the same “tough” demeanor that the Canaanite woman displays in this Gospel. When we signed up for the Trail, we asked God, our Blessed Mother, and our patron saints to give us strength to perform this challenge. We are now half-way along in our pilgrimage—we started training months ago, and each morning we’ve risen to continue this adventure to reach Notre Dame. We have had doubts and prayed for daily strength—some of us have experienced God carrying us when we thought we’d reached our limit. 

Saint of the Day

St. Bernard, the honey-sweet doctor, you convinced 31 of your friends to enter the monastery with you--pray for us!
