The Bible records many wonderful healings which are dear to all students of Christian Science, healings of many types of error. One of especial interest and potential enlightenment is recorded in the fifth chapter of Mark, beginning with the twenty-second verse.

Jesus was requested by one of the rulers of the synagogue to come and heal his young daughter, who was seriously ill. As Jesus was going with him, a multitude of people "followed him, and thronged him." In this multitude was "a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse."

That this woman had much faith, humility, love, and desire for good was evidenced in her actions. When she heard of Jesus she "came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole." In fact, her faith was so steadfast, her humility so great, her love so pure that she experienced an instantaneous healing. "Straight-way," the Scripture continues, "the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague."
