There was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there…
So, why was Mary, so absorbed in the details of the wedding, moved to expect a miracle from Jesus to solve this problem? Mary, as the new Eve, prompted her Son to fulfill His vocation in this richly meaningful wedding setting… Jesus performs the miracle, transforming the water into the best wine. To make this possible, the servants had to listen to Mary’s directive: Do whatever He tells you.
These are Mary’s last words in the Gospel. They continue to ring out over the centuries to all of us who discover that our lives have no wine – that we are living on the water of sin, meaninglessness, and fear. The Bridegroom has come to transform all this. We simply need to do whatever He tells us.
