Matthew 9:18-26

Courage, your faith will restore you

In today's Gospel we read of an unnamed woman who is desperately in need of healing. She would be conscious that in her society she must not approach a strange man in public. In addition because of her bleeding, she is ritually unclean. However, her faith enables her to reach beyond herself and secretly touch Jesus' garment and claim wholeness. Jesus responds to her touch and cures her. Can I today in my littleness reach out and ask Jesus to heal me?
