Touch Jesus and be Healed.

Here is an insightful observation from Mary Healy's commentary on The Gospel of Mark (5.31-32):

"What made the woman's touch unlike that of all the others in the crowd was her faith. She wanted to touch Jesus' garment lightly, without attracting any attention to herself, whereas others were jostling roughly against him. Yet her touch was more efficacious than all the rest, because through faith it came into contact with the person of Jesus and his healing power. Jesus looked around, desiring that she meet his gaze and enter into a relationship with him." [p. 106, 107]
