Do not be afraid; just have faith. The Gospel portrays Jesus as divine healer and author of life. What is common to the synagogue official named Jairus and the woman afflicted with hemorrhages is their complete faith in Jesus. While the disciples and the people from the official’s house express their doubts, Jairus and the woman believe in the power of Jesus. They place all their hope in Jesus.
We may stumble and sin. We may ignore God or turn away from God. But God never condemns or abandons us. Jesus tells us, “Talitha koum!” Arise!
Present to Jesus what you want him to heal in you and in your loved ones.
