They laid the sick in the marketplaces.

“Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed.” (MK 6: 56)

We always have some sick people around us, to say nothing about ourselves. The same strategy is also for today: bring “the sick,” our relatives and friends who are not well, to Our Lord. If “only the tassel on his cloak” was enough, how about His Eucharistic presence.

“Jesus preached the Gospel of the Kingdom and cured every disease among the people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
