Liturgical texts here
CAN you hear it? Jesus is leaning over humanity again, saying, “Ephphatha” that is, “Be opened”…
Jesus groans again over a world that has become “deaf and dumb,” a people that has so compromised that we have completely “lost the sense of sin.” So it was with Solomon whose idolatry would tear his kingdom apart—symbolized by the prophet tearing his cloak into twelve strips.
