"Yes it is, Lord," she said. "Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table."
just like that Lord. As an ill dog begging for some food I am before you. Needing of you and receiving even crumbs at your feet. receiving the good and sour, no matter. I am hungry for you. this is how I humble myself before you. may I be of the Lowest! may I be nothing! but may you be EVERYTHING! May I be as a lame dog, lying in the streets before you. May I eat nothing but only what you give me. Whether it be a crumb or a whole loaf of bread. I receive it. May I be as Paul says: we are only but mere slaves. Servants to our God. May I cry before you as a dog cries to its master. may my cries touch your ears and have mercy on me....
