Jesus continues to make changes in the very rules and regulations that bound Judaic culture, creating freedoms we still take advantage of today. In our reflections, we see how he begins to change the whole dietary approach to spiritual life— to the notion that what you ate could affect your spirituality. Jesus was looking to change the condition of the heart, which does affect your spirituality. In our second reflection, we see Jesus recognize the faith of the Canaanite woman. We think he is being cruel, but what he finds and reveals is faith. Faith has many shapes and appears uniquely in every individual.
