To go Up you have to go Dow Gospel of Sunday July 16 XX of the Ordinary Time Dear brothers and sisters, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary that we celebrate on August 15th can help us to understand the passage from the Gospel of Matthew that we will listen to on Sunday 16 which tells us about the Canaanite woman who manages, in a wonderful way, to "snatch" a miracle, so to speak, from Jesus . In fact, what allowed Mary, the Mother of Jesus, to be lifted up to Heaven in body and soul if not her stooping before God, the emptying of herself for God, in other words her humility? And what allowed the Canaanite woman to be raised by her despair caused by the drama of her daughter tormented by the devil, if not her stooping before Jesus, Son of God, the emptying of herself for God, in other words her humility? The laws that rule the Kingdom of God are not the same as those that rule this earthly world. In the Kingdom of God, if you want to go up you have to go down, if you want to be the first you have to be the last, if you want to reign you have to serve!
