Wednesday Word

Wednesday Word – 9th September 2015
In this week’s Gospel we listen to a very short account of how Jesus healed a deaf man.  The gospel account can teach us many things.  On one level we are shown how Jesus was a great healer who performed fantastic miracles.  However every gospel account should speak to us today.  Today’s gospel asks us to consider whether we can be deaf at times to things that we do not want to hear. 

(23rd Week Ordinary Time) Gospel: Mark 7:31-37
Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis.  They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him.   He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue.  Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”  And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly.  Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more widely they proclaimed it.  They were astounded beyond measure, saying, “He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

Discussion:
  • Do you believe in miracles?
  • Why did Jesus ask the people not to tell others about the miracle?
  • Have you ever discovered something that you cannot keep quiet about?
  • Do you betray friends confidences?  Why is it hard to keep a secret?
  • As we begin a new school year, what can we do to ensure that we always ‘hear’ and ‘speak the truth’?

Prayer:
Dear Lord, as we begin this new school year, we gather once again as your community of believers.  We thank you for the energy and the spirit that you renewed in us through the summer holidays.  We thank you for the time to enjoy our family and friends and to reflect on what is important in our lives.  Let this year be marked by enthusiasm and love so that, with the inspiration of your Spirit, we may continue to grow in our faith.
Help us to fulfill Your hope for us with honest intentions and works of faith..  Let us be gentle with ourselves and bring laughter, joy and love to others.
We ask this in your name. Amen.
