Quoting Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Father Matthias asks the question "How does Jesus come into my life" and answers, firstly, by his spiritual presence in our hearts, secondly, through the proclamation of the Word, the teachings of the Church, and, thirdly, through the Sacraments. Father stresses that we can still touch Jesus today as the woman with the issue of blood did in today's Gospel. St. Augustine said, "To touch him with our hearts: that is what it means to believe", and we touch Him in the Sacraments. The better we are disposed, the more fruit they will bear. But we can also impede their action. Let us, like the woman, come to Jesus and let Him heal us. Ave Maria!
