‘If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well.’

The faith shown by this woman is an inspiration to all of us. Hers was a quiet, private faith. She did not need Jesus to acknowledge her, nor did she need to make a big point of approaching him. She had such faith that a simple touch was enough.

Today’s gospel raises the question as to whether our faith is as pure as that woman’s. The idea of being cured in such a simple way can seem not proper and yet this is one of the best known stories of healing in the Bible. May we seek to develop a relationship with our God that is as pure and gentle.
