The Readings

A READING FROM THE GOSPEL OF MARK (7:24-37)


Jesus set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not
want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, but a woman
whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she
came and bowed down at his feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of
Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He
said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children’s food
and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered him, “Sir, even the dogs under the
table eat the children’s crumbs.” Then he said to her, “For saying that, you may go
—the demon has left your daughter.” So she went home, found the child lying on
the bed, and the demon gone.

Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the
Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who
had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. He
took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears,
and he spat and touched his tongue. Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and
said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” And immediately his ears were
opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them
to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it.
They were astounded beyond measure, saying, “He has done everything well; he
even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
