The Gifts of Hearing and Speaking
Being able to hear and being able to speak are two very great gifts. They are also connected in both the physical and spiritual senses.

This is why, in the Sacrament of Baptism the ears and the mouth of the person being baptized are touched while these words are said: 'The Lord Jesus made the deaf hear and the mute speak. May he touch your ears to receive his word and your mouth to proclaim your faith..."

We all need Jesus' healing power in our lives to help us hear God's words with open ears, proIn the physical realm people who lose the gift of fess that word with our lips, and put it into practice with our lives. hearing often retreat into silence. The former may in fact cause the latter. Speech remains our Fr. Charlie Brunick, CSP chief means of communicating with other people.

However, this particular story is important to those who are gifted with hearing and speaking skills because just having those skills doesn't mean we always use them well.

A Word from Servant of God Isaac Thomas Hecker
