Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
Feb 04, 2020 – Tuesday
Gospel: Mark 5:21-43
“If I touch even his garment, I shall be well.”
This is the story of the woman who has been bleeding for 12 years and has lost all hope until she hears Jesus is nearby, touches the hem of his garment and pleads for mercy. Such faith!
Jesus felt the power come out of Him and asks, Who touched Me? How often do we call on Him to help us? We can approach Him each day through the Holy Eucharist. Do we spend time to be with Him, listening to His words, and feeling Him in our hearts? When we tug at His heart (“I perceive the power gone out of Me. – Luke 8:46), He is moved with pity.
Let us ask Our Lady to help us be humble, and devoted like her, and learn to call on Jesus for all matters, big or small.
