DG BookGospel: Mk 7:31–37
Again Jesus set out: from the country of Tyre he passed through Sidon and, skirting the sea of Galilee, he came to the
territory of Decapolis. There a deaf man, who also had difficulty in speaking, was brought to him. They asked Jesus to lay his
hand upon him. Jesus took him apart from the crowd, put his fingers into the man’s ears, and touched


his tongue with spittle. Then, looking up to heaven, he said with a deep sigh, “Ephphata!” that is, “Be opened!”
And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was loosened, and he began to speak clearly. Jesus ordered them not to tell
anyone about it, but the more he insisted, the more they proclaimed it. The people were completely astonished and said, “He
has done all things well; he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.”

 

Reflection:

Life for someone who could not express what he or she feels, and having
difficulty in understanding others because of hearing problems must be very hard
indeed. Communication is difficult. And slowly one retreats to oneself and
shun the world. Being in company of others is a burden rather than being
source of joy. That is why Jesus’ healing of the deaf man who had difficulty
in speaking is more than just the restoration of speech and hearing. It is
giving back life and the the capacity to enjoy it to the fullest. No wonder
the people could not be stopped from proclaiming the healing miracle to
others. Life as it is meant to be lived begins that day forthe former deaf and dumb man.
