Love That Word

It's my new favorite word. Ephphatha. Ears, be opened!

It's in today's Gospel reading. Jesus touches a man's ears and says, "Be opened!" And the man's ears were opened.

The priest says this word during the Sacrament of Baptism. Little ears, I pray that you will be opened and soon hear and understand the Good News of the Gospel.

An awesome word!

Go ahead, touch your own ears right now and say it. Ephphatha! Lord, open my ears that I may hear You.

Go ahead, hold that tiny son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, and touch those little, adorable ears. Ephphatha! May your ears be open to the Words of Jesus Christ! Grow in your Faith, my little sweetheart!

Ephphatha! Be opened!
