“She should be given something to eat.” (Mk 5:43)
Two miracles. One – for a woman suffering for 12 years, and the second – for a little, 12-year-old girl. The same number of years. A different perspective. He came in the present time and changed the past: she wasn’t ill any more, and the future: “she may get well and live” (Mk 5:23). For Him, changing the past and the future is equally possible. Time belongs to Him and through time He shows His divine power. When I live in the presence of Him, I can put my past and my future into His hands. And He will take care of them. “Do not be afraid, just have faith” (Mk 5:36).
Will God, who asked for food for a little child, forget about spiritual gifts?
“Nourished by these redeeming gifts, we pray, o Lord, that trough this help to eternal salvation true faith may ever increase.” (Prayer after Communion)
