2 Samuel 18:9-10, 14b, 24-25a, 10; 19:3; Ps 86; Mark 5:21-43

Simplicity and faith

Today’s gospel is about faith, knowledge and simplicity. The woman who touched Jesus’ cloak had faith, and Jesus knew and simply confirmed the cure. Jairus had faith too, and Jesus knew the girl’s state from a distance, and when he eventually got to her simply told her to wake up and get up. There were no long, involved prayers. Just simple faith and simple response. Do I have such faith and pray simply, and thank simply when my request is granted?
