We see in this Gospel a tale of forgiveness and cleansing. This Gospel to me is a story of forgiveness which is an important ideal for teenagers to know and learn. In high school, we worry and dwell on the small things in life but little mercies of bits of forgiveness help us through. Jesus forgives a woman and her daughter and gets rid of her daughter’s demon. We need to be like Jesus and forgive others and forgive ourselves, this way we can overcome any of our struggles every day and live our lives.
