Daily Gospel Reading – Mark 5:21-43

Jairus’ Daughter and the Woman Who Touched Jesus’ Garment

21 When Jesus had crossed again by boat to the other side, many people gathered to Him. And He was beside the sea. 22 One of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus, saw Jesus and came and fell at His feet 23 and earnestly asked Him, “My little daughter is lying at the point of death. I ask You, come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed. And she will live.” 24 So Jesus went with him.

And many people followed Him and pressed in on Him. 25 And a certain woman had a hemorrhage for twelve years, 26 and had suffered much under many physicians. She had spent all that she had, and was not better but rather grew worse. 27 When she had heard of Jesus, she came in the crowd behind Him and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If I may touch His garments, I shall be healed.” 29 And immediately her hemorrhage dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.healing2bwomen_marcellinus-peter-catacomb-600x250

30 At once, Jesus knew within Himself that power had gone out of Him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My garments?”

31 His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing against You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

32 And He looked around to see her who had done it. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the entire truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

35 While He was still speaking, some came from the house of the synagogue ruler and said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid, only believe.

37 He let no one follow Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult, and those who wept and wailed loudly. 39 When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this uproar and weep? The girl is not dead, but sleeping.” 40 They laughed at Him in ridicule.

But when He had put them all out, He took the father and the mother of the girl and those who were with Him and entered where the girl was lying. 41 He took the girl by the hand and said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” 42 Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were greatly astonished. 43 He strictly ordered them to let no one know of it and directed them to give her something to eat.
