(that is, “Be opened!”)

1 dumb stdas0160

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 7:31-37.

Jesus left the district of Tyre and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, into the district of the Decapolis.
And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears and, spitting, touched his tongue;
then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”)
And (immediately) the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it.
They were exceedingly astonished and they said, “He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and (the) mute speak.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Augustine

Giusto di Gand (Joos van Wassenhove), sant'agostino.jpg

Saint Augustine

(354-430),

Bishop of Hippo (North Africa) and Doctor of the Church

Sermon on the Psalms, Ps 102[103] : 5-6 ; PL 37, 1319

“Jesus took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears”

“The Lord heals all your ills” (Ps 102[103]:3). Never fear, all your ills will healed. You say they are big ones, but the doctor is even greater. For an all-powerful doctor there is no such thing as an incurable sickness. Simply let yourself be cared for, don’t push away his hand, he knows what to do. Don’t be happy only when he acts with gentleness but bear with it, too, when he prunes. Accept the unpleasantness of the cure by thinking of the healing it will bring you.

Notice all those things, brethren, that people put up with in their physical ills so as to prolong their lives a few days… You, at least, are not suffering for an uncertain result: he who has promised you your health cannot be mistaken. Why is it that doctors are sometimes mistaken? Because they have not created the body they are treating. But God has made your body, God has made your soul. He knows how to recreate what he has created; he knows how to refashion what he has formed. You have only to abandon yourself into his doctor’s hands… Endure his hands, then, O soul that “blesses him and forgets not all his benefits: he heals all your ills” (P2 102[103]:2-3).

He who had made you never to become sick if you would kept his precepts, will he not heal you? He who made the angels and, in recreating you, will make you equal to the angels: will he not heal you? He who made heaven and earth, will he not heal you after having made you in his image? (Gn 1:26) He will heal you but you must consent to be healed. He heals every sickness perfectly but he does not heal it in spite of himself… Your health is Christ.

Saint of the day

St. Scholastica,

Abbess (+ c. 543)

san-solastica-untitled

SAINT SCHOLASTICA
Abbess
(+ c. 543)

        Of this Saint but little is known on earth, save that she was the sister of the great patriarch St. Benedict, and that, under his direction, she founded and governed a numerous community near Monte Casino.

        St. Gregory sums up her life by saying that she devoted herself to God from her childhood, and that her pure soul went to God in the likeness of a dove, as if to show that her life had been enriched with the fullest gifts of the Holy Spirit.

        Her brother was accustomed to visit her every year, for “she could not be sated or wearied with the words of grace which flowed from his lips.” On his last visit, after a day passed in spiritual converse, the Saint, knowing that her end was near, said, “My brother, leave me not, I pray you, this night, but discourse with me till dawn on the bliss of those who see God in heaven.” St. Benedict would not, break his rule at the bidding of natural affection; and then the Saint bowed her head on her hands and prayed; and there arose a storm so violent that St. Benedict could not return to his monastery, and they passed the night in heavenly conversation.

        Three days later St. Benedict saw in a vision the soul of his sister going up in the likeness of a dove into heaven. Then he gave thanks to God for the graces He had given her, and for the glory which had crowned them. When she died, St. Benedict, her spiritual daughters, and the monks sent by St. Benedict mingled their tears and prayed, “Alas! alas! dearest mother, to whom dost thou leave us now? Pray for us to Jesus, to Whom thou art gone.” They then devoutly celebrated holy Mass, “commending her soul to God;” and her body was borne to Monte Casino, and laid by her brother in the tomb he had prepared for himself.” And they bewailed her many days;” and St. Benedict said, “Weep not, sisters and brothers; for assuredly Jesus has taken her before us to be our aid and defence against all our enemies, that we may stand in the evil day and be in all things perfect.”

        She died about the year 543.
