And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
We have all been injured and have known the desire to be healed. Whether those hurts are physical, emotional, or spiritual, Christ beckons us to His presence to be healed. Here, the woman reaches towards the prayer shawl, tallit, or garment of Christ, and by touching the threads of His garment she is healed. Hers was an act of faith. By reaching out to Christ, she made a covenant to follow Him, and in return He healed her. She did not sit idly by the wayside, but actively sought out the Savior. While we will endure hardships and injuries in this life, there is peace to be found in following Christ. By doing so, we open the way for the Atonement to heal our pains so that we, too, may “go in peace.” (Luke 8:48)
