‘WHO’S DEAF AND WHO’S MUTE?’ (Lk 11:14-23): 28 February 2008 (Thursday)
They’re way up there with paralytics and lepers. I’m referring to the deaf and the mute–people who are among our Lord’s favorite people to heal. One such occasion is found in the gospel reading today, where our Lord drove out “a demon that was mute” from a man.
This story, like the other miracle stories of Jesus, is an invitation for us to believe in the power of God to work miracles in our lives.
