Readings of the Day

Focus of the Today

Sin is not merely a cluster of evil acts, but it is more a fundamental disposition and orientation; it is a fundamental alienation from God, a grievous rupture of the intimate relationship with Him

Inspiring Catholic Reflection for the Day

The biggest temptation is man’s desperate search to organise his life without God, and thus to do away with God. In other words, this is a closure to God’s grace. As long as man is closed to God’s action, he cannot experience the fullness and fulfilment of life.

Without openness to God, man will experience insufficiency and inability in many ways. Therefore, what is needed is “to be opened”. Precisely, it is to be opened to God’s grace. In fact, the whole fault of the first parents was that they were opened to the Evil one, and not to God. They hide from God, while they happily engage themselves in lively dialogue with Satan.

But Jesus in the gospel reverses the situation. Jesus heals a deaf and dumb man. His actions like putting his finger into the man’s ears, spitting and touching his tongue, and pronouncing the healing command, “Ephphatha” – all show his personal concern and trouble for us.

Today, the same invitation and command are addressed to each one of us: “Ephphata” (be opened). You who are deaf to God’s voice and message, you who are deaf to the cries of the needy and struggling, be opened to your inner listening. You who are dumb and not speaking God’s word and good word, be opened of inner speaking.

For this, we need our hearts to be opened. Only when there is an opening to God’s grace, only when we are open to His touch and healing, we will be set free from our inner bondages, and our inner energies will overflow into streams of health and wholeness.

Direction For Life

This is high time that we sharpen our listening to become more attentive and clear our speaking to become more responsive and concerned.
