Excerpt from Women Labouring in the Lord: A Sermon Preached at Wantage, on St. Mary Magdalen's Day, July 22, 1863
To a Woman, to her who had had an issue of blood twelve years, was given, in reward of her faith and humility, the privilege of being the first to have revealed to her the healing (might I not say the sacramental?) Virtue, which abode in the very hem of His garment, to meet the touch of Faith.
Women, as far as we are told, were the first who had the honour allowed them of ministering to Him of their substance.
