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