XXIII DOMENICA DEL TEMPO ORDINARIO (YEAR B) – With. Liturgical: Green

Commentary on the Sunday Gospel 5 September 2021

A deaf-mute. It looks a lot like us, when we are in sin.
We can have God beside us, who whispers the sweetest and most imperious words to us. We don't feel it. We can have near the sharpest and most good people, who wish to help us. We don't pay attention. Or we pass in front of those who need comfort, of a hope. It is as if we are alone in the world, closed in our selfishness.
But if the sacrament of Christ reaches us… It may be the Church that baptizes or offers us forgiveness in the name of the Lord Jesus. Fingers, saliva, the "open" can be the water or the blessing hand that is raised on us: "I baptize you"; "I absolve you".
Then the "miracle" happens again.
We become capable, by grace, to hear the consolations and promptings and imperatives of God. We become able to answer him with prayer and with life.
And the neighbor is the one who must be listened to and comforted. Fraternity is born.
If we allow ourselves to be saved by the Lord. If we adhere to him with all our strength.
