Matthew 9: 18-26

There is touching and there is touching.  In Matthew 9:18-26 there is a short piece about a woman who has been sick for twelve years.  She comes up to touch Jesus, but with a great deal of faith.  She was cured.  A lot of other people were pressing in on Jesus, touching him, but with no faith as this woman had.  When I go to receive the Eucharist, I am touching Jesus.  It is supposed to be a sacrament of healing for my suffering soul.  Is it?  Maybe it depends on what I bring to the table.
