Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

February 5, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

2 Samuel 18:9-10, 14b, 24-25a, 3019:3
Psalm 86:1-2, 3-4, 5-6
Mark 5:21-43

A reflection on today's Scripture:

If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured. . . .(Mark 5:28)

The merest touch, simply passing by Him is enough to be a cure for this woman who suffered so long from such a debilitating illness. To stand in His shadow is enough, it makes whole what was broken and it cleans what was unclean.

If we could hold that faith in our hearts and see with that woman's eyes, we would begin to understand how important He is to us. We do not see Him every day only because most of the time we're too caught up in ourselves to look.

But in our times of need our eyes are opened momentarily, and He passes by. We can reach out and touch the hem of His robe, and we too will be made whole--cured not merely of bodily sickness, but of the sickness that has so long prevented us from seeing Him.
