Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 5:21-43.

When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward. Seeing him he fell at his feet
and pleaded earnestly with him, saying, “My daughter is at the point of death. Please, come lay your hands on her that she may get well and live.”
He went off with him, and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him.
There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak.
She said, “If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.”
Immediately her flow of blood dried up. She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who has touched my clothes?”
But his disciples said to him, “You see how the crowd is pressing upon you, and yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?'”
And he looked around to see who had done it.
The woman, realizing what had happened to her, approached in fear and trembling. She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.”
While he was still speaking, people from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?”
Disregarding the message that was reported, Jesus said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid; just have faith.”
He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official, he caught sight of a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly.
So he went in and said to them, “Why this commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but asleep.”
And they ridiculed him. Then he put them all out. He took along the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and entered the room where the child was.
He took the child by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!”
The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around. (At that) they were utterly astounded.
He gave strict orders that no one should know this and said that she should be given something to eat

Saint Cyril of Alexandria

(380-444),

Bishop, Doctor of the Church

Commentary on Saint John, IV

“Taking her hand he said to her, … ‘Get up.’”

Even in raising people from the dead, the Savior is not content with acting solely by means of his word, although it is the bearer of divine commands. If I might put it this way, he takes his own flesh as collaborator in this magnificent work, so as to show that it has the power to give life and to make visible that it is entirely one with him. For it is really his own flesh and not a foreign body. That is what happened when he raised the synagogue official’s daughter. When he told her: “My child, get up!” he took her by the hand. As God, he gave her life through an almighty commandment, and he also gave her life through the contact with his holy flesh, thus testifying that one single divine power was at work in his body and in his word. In the same way again, when he came to the village of Naim where they were burying the only son of a widow, he touched the coffin saying: “Young man, I bid you get up.” (Lk 7:13-17)

Thus, he not only gives his word the power to raise the dead, but in order to show that his body is life-giving, he also touches the dead, and by his flesh he causes life to pass into their dead bodies. If the simple contact with his sacred flesh gives back life to a body that is decomposing, how great a profit will we find in his life-giving eucharist, when we make it our food? It will totally transform those who will have taken part in it into what is his own, that is to say, into immortality.

Saints of the day

St. Marcella,

Widow

(325-410)

saintm8a

SAINT MARCELLA
Widow
(325-410)

        St. Marcella, whom St. Jerome called the glory of the Roman women, became a widow in the seventh month after her marriage. Having determined to consecrate the remainder of her days to the service of God, she rejected the hand of Cerealis, the consul, uncle of Gallus Caesar, and resolved to imitate the lives of the ascetics of the East. She abstained from wine and flesh-meat, employed all her time in pious reading, prayer, and visiting the churches, and never spoke with any man alone. Her example was followed by many who put themselves under her direction, and Rome was in a short time filled with monasteries.

        When the Goths under Alaric plundered Rome in 410, our Saint suffered severely at the hands of the barbarian, who cruelly scourged her in order to make her reveal the treasures which she had long before distributed in charity. She trembled only, however, for the innocence of her dear spiritual daughter, Principia, and falling at the feet of the cruel soldiers, she begged with many tears that they would offer no insult to that pure virgin. God moved them to compassion, and they conducted our Saint and her pupil to the Church of St. Paul, to which Alaric had granted the right of sanctuary, with that of St. Peter.

        St. Marcella, who survived this but a short time, closed her eyes by a happy death, in the arms of St. Principia, about the end of August, 410.
