2nd Sunday of OT (C)

Do whatever He tells you JOHN 2:1–11

As we begin our second week of Ordinary Time, having completed the season of Christmas with the Solemnity of the Baptism of our Lord last Sunday, the Church presents us with the Scripture passage of the Wedding Feast at Cana. Most of us would be familiar with this passage as we contemplate it each time we reflect upon the second decade of the Mysteries of Light of the Most Holy Rosary. The miracle we are contemplating happens just before the beginning of the public ministry of Jesus. Here we have the first sign that Jesus is truly the Messiah that all the world has been awaiting, the Word of God in the flesh.

At the very heart of this passage of Scripture is its portrayal of Mary as the Mother of God and our Mother as well. Like any mother, Mary instinctually knows that things are not right at the wedding feast. She therefore asks Jesus for help, even though she knows that He has not yet begun His public ministry.
