Fresco from the Catacomb of Sts. Marcellinus and Peter, Rome, early 4th Century
showing the haemorrhissa being healed by touching Christ’s garment (Mk 5:25–34).
The above scene depicts the encounter of Jesus with the woman with the hemorrhage. This woman who had suffered for many years was healed by touching the cloak of Jesus through the power that ‘had gone forth from him.’
The sacraments of the Church now continue the works which Christ had performed during his earthly life. The sacraments are as it were ‘powers that go forth’ from the Body of Christ to heal the wounds of sin and to give us new life in Christ.
This image thus symbolizes the divine and saving power of the Son of God who heals the whole man, soul and body, through the sacramental life. – Catechism of the Catholic Church
The sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church are seven in number: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance or Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
