John 2, 1-11-fb

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 2, 1-11

There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
When the wine ran short,
the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Woman, how does your concern affect me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servers,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings,
each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus told them,
“Fill the jars with water.”
So they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,
“Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.”
So they took it. 
And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine,
without knowing where it came from
— although the servers who had drawn the water knew —,
the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory,
and his disciples began to believe in him.

Finding Jesus

1) Mary is revealed as someone who has found Jesus in her life. She feels forgiven by God and is not one of those puritans who beat their chest to repent, but rather a person who knows herself as a forgiven sinner. She sees her brothers and sisters in the light of the forgiveness that she has received. It’s our turn now. We are called to be like Mary and praise God for having received His mercy.

2) Judas. Today, we see this character – a selfish and calculating individual. A materialistic person who even uses God as a lucky charm. You and I can be like Judas, seeing money in everything! Even in God. We measure and calculate everything, even to the extent of estimating the amount of gasoline that our car will use to go to mass and then decide whether it suits us or not to go! Everything is money!

3) The poor. It would be good if you could think of what charitable action you can do this week. Perhaps you can prepare a meal for someone, do the shopping for someone who cannot go out, or keep in touch with people who are lonely, like the elderly in a nursing home. There are so many things we can do for others! Today, we need Christians in action. Do you dare?

God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And don’t forget, Heaven is our goal!
