Homily: Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Last month we heard the Gospel where the Jewish Leaders murmuring about the Jesus.  In this week’s Gospel, before Jesus heals the deaf man we are told that Jesus groans and then says the word, Ephphatha – be opened!  
What are we to “be opened” about?  And why can’t we just spend our life groaning? And how can Rosa Parks and the late Cardinal Martini help shed light on all of this?
