Yes, and did you know that the word “ephphatha” is fingerspelled on Gallaudet University seal. Ephphatha is latin for “Be Opened.” There are various spellings of this word at schools and/or places for Deaf people throughout the developing (and some developed) countries of the world today.

Hi PaulKSimmons, yes Im aware of Gallaudet’s seal having Ephphatha on it. I thought it was cool since Im aware the word doesn’t mean “Hear!” but “Be Opened!” like you said, like in Open Your Eyes! or Open Your Mind!
However, I understand that some people interpret this to mean Gallaudet participates in the mentality of curing deafness because it’s a sin or wrong, etc.
Would be an interesting dialogue on this…and would be good to see that happen.
