Liturgical day: Sunday June 28
Gospel (Mk 5,21-43): At that time Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered to him; He was on the seashore. Comes one of the rulers of the synagogue named Jairus, and seeing him, fell at his feet and begged him earnestly, saying, "My daughter is about to die; Come and lay your hands on her, to be saved and may live. " And he went with him. Was followed by a large crowd thronged him.
Then a woman who had an issue of blood twelve years, who had suffered much from many doctors and had spent all to no avail, but rather grew worse, having heard what was said of Jesus, approached behind the crowd and touched his cloak. Well he said, "If I can touch even just his clothes, I will save." Immediately he wiped the blood supply and felt in her body that she was healed of evil. At once, Jesus, realizing that power had gone out of Him, turned in the crowd and said, "Who touched my clothes?". His disciples replied, "You're seeing people thee, and sayest: 'Who touched me?'". But He looked around to discover that he had. Then the woman, knowing what had happened, came in fear and trembling, he fell before him and told him the whole truth. He said, "Daughter, your faith has saved you; Go in peace and be healed of your disease. "
While talking coming from the house of the chief of the synagogue to say, "Your daughter is dead; Why trouble the Teacher? ". Jesus heard what they said, says the head of the synagogue: "Fear not; only believe. " And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter, James and John, the brother of James. Arrive at the house of the chief of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. Enters and tells them: "Why do you commotion and weeping? The child is not dead; she's asleep. " And they laughed at him. But after he put them all out, taketh the father of the child, and his mother, and went in where the child was. He took the girl's hand, he says, "Talitha kum" which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." The girl got up at once and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. They were beside themselves, full of wonder. And he was very insistent that no one knew; and he told them to give her something to eat.
