Lenten Reading, Monday, March 15

Lent Reading: "Someone touched me." Luke 8:40-48

And as Jesus returned, the people welcomed Him, for they had all been waiting for Him.
 And there came a man named Jairus, and he was an official of the synagogue; and he fell at Jesus' feet, and began to implore Him to come to his house;
 for he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. But as He went, the crowds were pressing against Him.
 And a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and could not be healed by anyone,
 came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped.
 And Jesus said, "Who is the one who touched Me?" And while they were all denying it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing in on You."
 But Jesus said, "Someone did touch Me, for I was aware that power had gone out of Me."
 When the woman saw that she had not escaped notice, she came trembling and fell down before Him, and declared in the presence of all the people the reason why she had touched Him, and how she had been immediately healed.
 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace."
