For 12 February 2009, Thursday of 5th week of Easter, based on Mark 7:24-30
From there Jesus set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, but a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, â€œLet the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the childrenâ€™s food and throw it to the dogs.â€ But she answered him, â€œSir, even the dogs under the table eat the childrenâ€™s crumbs.â€ Then he said to her, â€œFor saying that, you may goâ€”the demon has left your daughter.â€ So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
