"As the woman in the Bible who had suffered from hemorrhages during twelve long years,
I too, longed to touch this Jesus, all the while trembling,
not from apprehension that He would reject me,
but that I would find Him as I feared He was.
As Zacchaeus, I wanted to climb a tree so that I might see Him better,
but at the same time, I feared He would turn His illuminated face towards me,
and that He would call me by name.
Such was the delicious fear that the Person of Jesus awakened in me."
