"The story of the Syrophoenician Woman (Mark 24-30) as illustrated in the magnificent 15th century medieval manuscript " Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry", a book of daily devotions made for John duke de Berry, younger son of the king of France and a great patron of the arts. You can see the woman on her knees entreating Christ to heal her daughter. Jesus’ back is turned against her, to portray his initial reluctance. In the background you can see her sick daughter in bed."

They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were, because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it. They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest. Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.” He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”
