Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 7,31-37
Jesus left the district of Tyre and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, into the district of the Decapolis.
And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears and, spitting, touched his tongue;
then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”)
And (immediately) the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it.
They were exceedingly astonished and they said, “He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and (the) mute speak.”
Do not be deaf mute in life
1) Mute: this is a neutral person. He cannot express specifically what he feels, what he experiences, he is mute. He cannot transmit with words what is happening inside of him. This is what kills to remain mute and not say what is happening inside.
2) Deaf: it is the person that does not receive information. You can be deaf when you are oblivious to what people are telling you. You do not understand others and you revolve around yourself only. This leads you to not understand anyone. You are indifferent because you do not listen what others have to say.
3) Be open: this is the miracle that God wants in your life. To open yourself to God, to others and to everything life has to offer. Do not isolate yourself and be afraid of everything. Do not pretend to be deaf and listen to the person in front of you, do not be mute and express what is inside of you. Do not be closed off and open yourself in order to fight through life. You are a miracle of God.
God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Always remember Heaven is our Goal.
