Today’s Gospel Reading: Mark 5:21-43 – 4th ORDINARY WEEK: Tuesday, 5 February 2019
At first, both Jairus and the woman who spent her life savings on doctors wanted physical contact with Jesus – a touch of the garment, a laying on of hands. In both cases, Jesus looked beneath the surface touch to the deeper contact of faith.
Through faith we make contact with the Lord. We can contact the same Jesus and be healed by the same saving power through faith and the sacramental, liturgical life of the Church.
Faith perceives the very real spiritual connections laced throughout our world into God.
