Jan Vermeyen: The Marriage Feast at Cana

Jan Vermeyen: The Marriage Feast at Cana

This brief but important story tells us a great deal about Jesus’ relationship with his mother and so it bears re-reading. When we begin to believe that we have lived beyond life’s rewards, we must remember the words of the wedding guest to the host: “You have kept the best wine until now!”

When we are too frightened or too confused to know what steps to next take when confronted by life, let us follow the advice of the Blessed Mother when she says . . . Do whatever he tells you . . . 

Let us be prepared to experience more goodness and joy than we can imagine.

Over the next few weeks we will be away from easy internet access but we will be pausing to read scripture and to pray and reflect at noon, keeping those in The Noontime Circle in mid-day prayer.

Wishing you grace and love and peace in Christ Jesus.
