DG BookGospel: John 2:1-11
Three days later there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was
there. Jesus was also invited to the wedding with his disciples. When all the wine provided
for the celebration had been served, and they had run out of wine, the mother of Jesus said

to him, “They have no wine.” Jesus replied, “Woman, what concern is that to you and me?
My hour has not yet come.” However his mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells
you.” Nearby were six stone water jars, set there for ritual washing as practiced by the Jews;
each jar could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with
water.” And they filled them to the brim. Then Jesus said, “Now draw some out and take it
to the steward.” So they did. The steward tasted the water that had become wine, without
knowing from where it had come; for only the servants who had drawn the water knew.
Immediately he called the bride groom, and said, “Everyone serves the best wine first, and
when people have drunk enough, he serves that which is ordinary. But you have kept the
best wine until the end.” This miraculous sign was the first, and Jesus performed it at Cana
in Galilee. In this way he showed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

 

Reflection:

 

In Roger Young’s movie Jesus, Jesus is delightfully dancing
at the wedding at Cana. Disciple Andrew is furious as he thinks that
Jesus has no interest in the urgent matters of his suffering people. So
Jesus asks him: “What’s the matter, Andrew? You don’t dance?”
Andrew retorts: “I will dance when Israel is free and men are honest.”
Jesus responds laughingly, “[It] will be a very slow dance.” There is much
suffering, poverty, and injustice in the world. Our passion to change
matters overnight may lead us to a tunnel vision fixated on only the
dark and the negative. Life, with all its shadow and pains, has its beauty
and goodness. We shall not miss such moments as well. As Isaiah
reminds us, God delights in us, despite all our shortcomings. It is
good to recall this prayer attributed to St. Teresa of Avila: “From silly
devotions and sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us.” Amen.
