From today’s Gospel reading:

There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors
and had spent all that she had.
Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd
and touched his cloak.
She said, “If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.”
Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him,
turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who has touched my clothes?”
But his disciples said to Jesus,
“You see how the crowd is pressing upon you,
and yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?’”
And he looked around to see who had done it.
The woman, realizing what had happened to her,
approached in fear and trembling.
She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you.
Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.”

The Gospel reminded me of this old gospel tune.  Canadian chanteuse Basia Bulat (above) recorded my favorite version, though I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention The Soul Stirrers (led, at the time, by the legendary Sam Cooke) and their version.

you can tell a lot about a person from their music. hit shuffle on your ipod, mp3 player, etc. & put the first 10 songs! one rule, no skipping! tag 10 some people & pass it on!
