Click here to download and listen to this homily (10 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus resurrects the synagog official's daughter after she had died by taking her hand. The women who suffered for twelve years is healed of her hemorrhage when she touches the cloak of Jesus. Do we come forward to communion with that same confidence that we will be healed by touching, in fact consuming, Jesus?
