THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Today’s gospel: Mark 7:31-37
There are many Catholics who are deaf-mutes. They are deaf
to the command of Jesus to proclaim the gospel to the ends
of the earth, and they are mute in sharing Christ to all.
We need to beg Jesus “to lay his hand on (them).”
(v.32b). We need to pray Jesus’ prayer for them: “‘Ephphatha!’
(that is, ‘Be opened!’).” (v.34b). Let not
just their ears and mouths be opened, but also their eyes
and their hearts.
you one of the deaf-mutes? Know that Jesus “makes the
deaf hear and the mute speak.” (v.37b).
