A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus



(pronounced - efata meaning-be open)  

There is a prayer that is said at the Ritual of Baptism shortly after the actual baptism has taken place, it is called the Ephphatha (be opened) prayer.   The prayer goes like this. 

 As the celebrant touches the ears and then the mouth of the child, he prays,

“The Lord has made the deaf hear and the dumb speak.   May He soon touch your ears to receive His word, and your mouth to proclaim His faith, to the praise and glory of God the Father. Amen.”
