I'm not actually a Christian, anymore...But this makes me want to pick up my old Bible and start reading it again. You pulled off a very sentimental story.

This was really good.
I love this part: 'Jesus took her hand and held it warmly, his eyes filled with love. "Our Father in Heaven is capable of anything, Mother." She was awestruck at the sincere authority in his voice. "You will be healed."'
It shows that Jesus had the authority of God in his voice and actions long before his time of teaching.
I also like how you showed Mary's human reaction as a mother and as someone who needed to put her trust in someone she could physically see and touch: 'Mary clutched his hands. "Jesus, you are a true miracle! How I love you so, my son!"' Then, true to his unique nature and knowledge, Jesus insists that Mary acknowledge God (not her human son, but the divine Father) as the true healer. You allude to the fact the Jesus cannot heal but through the will of his Father.
Wow... very cool...
