23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

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, “Ephphartha!” — that is, “Be opened!”

– Mark 7:32-34
