In Mark’s Gospel, the woman was healed of her hemorrhaging by touching the cloak of Jesus. For 12 years she sought healing, but found none. In a similar way, we can long suffer internal bleeding, in our hearts. We bleed inside when we harbor anger or resentment for injuries received. Worse still, our hearts bleed when we do not forgive the wrongs committed against us, often at the hands of those closest to us. Yet, if we approach Jesus honestly, admitting that we may not even desire to forgive, he will give us that grace. He will heal us. It takes faith to approach Jesus in this way.
