Blood is one symbol of life. When a person is bleeding, it means that life is being wasted away. We are this woman who is bleeding. We are bleeding from problems and sufferings we cannot bear. All humanity carries these problems, but only few carry them with a glorious meaning. Christ tells us in very strong words that what we need in this world is faith. Faith is our greatest treasure. Faith gives us eternal life! It helps us to rise up in situations of death, in poverty, in hatred, in depression, in all situations that are may occur against our will.
When we feel that life has no meaning, then, we are bleeding, Christ offers a cure. The cure is faith in Christ Jesus. Never give up hope! Even the daughter in the Gospel who was dead was raised from life! We too, even in the worst difficulty can be raised. So, take courage!
