Marian thought for December

«The faithful, living in the liturgy the spirit of Advent, by thinking about the inexpressible love with which the Virgin Mother awaited her Son, are invited to take her as a model and to prepare themselves to meet the Savior who is to come.» (Marialis Cultus, n.4)

From the Gospel of St. John

cana

"Do whatever he tells you" (John 2:5).

Sacred Scripture contains very few words pronounced by the Virgin Mary. Some of them are the commandment she gave at the Wedding Feast at Cana.


"On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast.” So they took it. When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him. After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his brethren and his disciples; and there they stayed for a few days" (John 2:1-12).

Mary is not far from our needs. As a good Mother she is aware of what we need and intercedes for us. At the same time she shows us something important: We must ask, but we must also act. What do we have to do? Whatever Jesus tells us. As always, Mary turns our gaze toward Him.
