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.
