Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
February 15, 2019 – Friday
Gospel: Mark 7:31-37
"Ephphatha! Be opened!" (cf. Mk 7:34)
In today's Gospel, Jesus healed a deaf man who also had difficulty in speaking, by saying just one word, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!" Today's Gospel reminds us the need to be open in order to be healed calling us also to open our hearts letting the Word of God instill its grace upon us. May we be like the deaf man in the Gospel who opened himself to Jesus and has been healed by the grace of His Word.
