(Mk 5:30-34)
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 him, "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."

Centering prayer is NOT prayer. The "centering" is exclusively on self, not a dialog between God and the soul. Dr. David Anders recently addressed this on his EWTN "Called to Communion" show.

It's the media conglomerates -- TV, radio, newspapers and social media overlords. Been doin' it for years. Now elevated to an art form.

(Mk 1:27):
All were amazed and asked one another, “What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.”

(Lk: 15:10):
In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

Yesterday during Mass, an unstable man rushed the altar during EWTN's live TV broadcast. Reportedly shouting about the "traditional Mass" and "conciliar abomination". There are valid issues on these topics, but disrupting Holy Mass is obviously not the time for one in control of themselves.

Tomorrow is the Solemnity of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation.

(Mk 10:52):
Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.

Always insightful Prof. Anthony Esolen is one of my favorite Catholic writers. In a piece published today in Crisis Magazine (also highly recommended), he looks at the allure of "inner rings" and how that can often lead to sin -- one sad step at a time.
