Jesus Cures a Deaf Man

Jesus Cures a Deaf Man

Reflection on the Gospel of the Friday
In The Fifth Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Mark 7: 31-37

“He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Jesus is in the north-east of Galilee, almost on its border. And if you remember, He has been doing great work in this semi-Jewish areas. There was that sign, where the legion of evil spirits went into the pigs, and the person they were in, uncontrollable and feared by everyone, was saved. The other day we read about the Syrophoenician Woman, who begged Jesus to save her daughter, and in the process showed us that faith is about the experience born from a relationship with God. This relationship may be direct, like that of the disciples, and it may be indirect – based on what one has heard, and seen from afar.

And the companions of this man have heard about Jesus, or possibly they have witnessed a miracle and heard His teachings themselves. Because of this is born a hope in them, hope that this man too can be healed. And if there is hope there is expectation… Jesus senses this, and He blesses this man, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” In another place Jesus commanded the Sea (a sign of the home of evil), and it obeyed. And here is Jesus asking the Father to give back this man his hearing and speech, and knowing the Father’s Heart, He commands the ears of this man, and they yield to the mercy of God’s love, and they are transformed, and his speech is also given him,

Lord there are many things in me, where there is hardness, it may not be at the conscious level, but it is there. I want your fullness for myself, say the word Lord, and I shall be healed.
