"Now there was a woman who had suffered from a hemorhage for twelve years....She had heard about Jesus, and she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his cloak....Immediately aware that power had gone out from him, Jesus turned round in the crowd and said, 'Who touched my clothes?' His disciples said to him, 'You see how the crowd is pressing round you and yet you say, 'Who touched me?'" (Mark 5:25-34)
Now there was a young girl in the village of Purushila. She was suffering because one day months ago when she woke up in the morning, she found that her mother had abandoned her and had gone to a far away country. It seemed that her heart was always bleeding. One day while a large group of children was huddled together discovering puzzles, the young girl was among them. Sr. Pam was in the middle of the huddle with children touching her and leaning on her from every side. The young girl took hold of and held on to Sr. Pam's little finger. Aware that the young girl was gripping her finger, Sr. Pam hoped that a sense of security and understanding flowed out to the heart of the lonely and frightened young girl.
