A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Your Faith Has Restored You to Health"

Jesus always reminds us of what really matters. Certainly bodily health is desirable. But more important is bodily wholeness that comes only from spiritual health. The woman in today's Gospel story came in search of miracles, believing that she would find them. If we come to the Lord in faith in search of God's help, we too shall find it. Each of us receives the healing that restores us to bodily wholeness. For some that may mean bodily health, for others mental health, for yet others spiritual health. But do not mistake, every one of these healings is a miracle that passes human words to express. Jesus is overwhelmingly generous to each person who looks for Him.
