And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground.A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured. Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all. Luke 6:17-19
When Jesus came down from the mountain after a night of prayer to the Father, he chose his twelve and named the apostles.
But he also took care of the sick and healed their diseases. Jesus had a power to cure those afflicted with unclean spirits. Where in all the earth do we have this today. To heal and remove demons. Back then these people wanted to just touch him and they were healed. We long for this today too.
We do have him in a way that we can be healed. We have him in the Eucharist, where he is present always. Where he can touch our lives with his body. How the power of his life emanates from such a simple, yet complex source. Today we have him in the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration, where we can reach out to him, where we can let him heal us, be it spiritually, or physically. In faith he is there to touch us.
