In the Gospel, we read about the woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years. She touched the clothes of Jesus and was healed. I am thinking that in various ways the Lord touches us too, wanting to heal us. Whenever I feel his holy presence, experience sudden joy, or want to do his will, he is touching me. Most of all, as I receive him in Holy Communion, he touches my whole being to the extent that we become one. The Lord in heaven unites fully with a soul on earth ~ what a glorious event!
