The deaf shall hear the words of a book

December 7, 2018 6:00 am

“On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; and out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see.” (IS 29: 18)

God’s word should be heard and seen. Our Lord wants to come into our hearts with the help of our main doors: through our ears and eyes. The picture of our beloved ones brings some comfort when we are living far away from each other; the voice of him or her when we talk by phone helps us to be closer and to share our lives, but there is nothing to compare with the ability to see and hear our beloved ones. Our Lord heals our ears and our eyes to be closer to us and to assure us about how much He loves us.

“Behold, our Lord shall come with power; he will enlighten the eyes of his servants.” (Gospel Acclamation)
