My daughter is dying. If I can only touch his cloak. Two great stories of faith are presented today. And yet both give us the same idea: Great things happen when you are close to Jesus. And to be close to Jesus, we simply need to open our heart. We can be close to Jesus in the sacraments. We can be close to Jesus in adoration. We can be close to Jesus in our room. Just open your heart to Jesus. Great things will happen.
