Mark 5:21-43 Reflection – Little Girl, Arise | Immersive Prayer
Reflection on Mark 5:21-43 ~ I find it interesting that Bible tradition has Jesus speaking the Aramaic “Talitha koum” despite whatever the translation might be. As a child of God, I am sure you have heard Jesus speak the equivalent of “little girl, arise” to you. Even with life’s numerous confrontations, our challenge is to awaken fully, rising in faith to all. Faith with Grace reduces fear, opens our hearts, creates empathy, and wraps us in the cloak of Christ so we may touch and embrace conditions such as suffering that are endured by "the other".
