Meditation Mk 5,21-43

Stand in God’s presence. God is present here and now, looking upon you with love.

Ask for the Grace: I will beg God our Lord that all my intentions and actions may be directed purely to the praise and service of His Divine Majesty

Fixing a place, a picture for meditation: Jesus crossed to the other side, where a crowd of people awaits him. Jair – one of the synagogue officials, comes to Jesus. He falls on his knees and asks Jesus to go with him and heal his dying daughter. Jesus goes with Jair. At some point, a woman who has been suffering from hemorrhages for 12 years, touches the cloak of Jesus and she became healed. In the end, Jesus also comes to Jairus’s home. He heals the girl. See all participants of the events, how they look, how they look, how they move, what they feel. Where you are?

Ask for the fruit of meditation: let myself to be touched by Jesus and let myself to get and accept the freedom he gives me 

1. Please, come lay your hands on her get that she may get well and live. (…) if I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured. Jairus and the suffering woman believe in the healing power of Jesus’ touch, and it leads them to the Son of God. Maybe it’s not just a physical touch. You can also touch someone with a word, look, behavior. You can touch pleasantly, with love, but also cool and biting. Certainly, however, each touch is connected with a direct relationship, with a meeting. What is your touch in dealing with other people in relation to yourself? What do you want to say to others, to yourself by your touch?

2.Touching Jesus meant healing. His touch restored freedom. Will you let Jesus touch you? He wants to give you freedom, where you need her. See, where and what spaces in you need freedom. Notice how much trust Jesus has for you. He wants you to be a completely free man. Free, means that you are fully responsible for your decisions and your life. We do not give freedom to others so easily, even sometimes we do not give the right to a different way of thinking. And only in the freedom true, real love can blossom. Love doesn’t know limits, it allows you to experience the Fullness of Life in God right now. What and how much freedom do you give to others and yourself? What kind of love flows from it? How do you experience the Fullness of Life in God today? How do you find in yourself the deep joy of meeting God? How do you share it with others?

3. Jesus also wants you to meet him in your internal freedom. Not, because you want to get something, to ask for, or because of your of  your fear. But because of your deep internal desire to meet him. Therefore, meet Jesus because of your love and stay in his presence just as you can and feel. 

Meditation: St Ignatius encourages in The Spiritual Exercises No. 2 … Because not so much knowledge, but internal feeling and the taste of things please and saturate the soul, that is, we stay where we feel interior movement … and nervously do not try to go on.

The final conversation: Spend a little time at the end, being with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit….as you would with a good friend: sometimes talking, sometimes listening, sometimes being together in silence. Speak to God about your feelings. Remember that times when ‘nothing is happening’ can also be significant. When you’re ready, end your prayer by saying thank you or using words that are familiar,such as the Lord’s Prayer (Our Father)–whichever feels right and comfortable. (The Spiritual Exercises No.54)
