What the waiters knew at Cana

First Wednesday in Ordinary Time

Deacon Robert Banet

I’m thankful for the Pope’s setting up the Luminous Mysteries.

Oh, you mean the ones focusing on the public life of the Lord?

Yes, especially the Cana wedding.  All those details! The Blessed Mother taking charge without being asked, Jesus seemingly turning her down, the enormous quantity of wine.

Yes, and to say nothing about its quality.  And the headwaiter’s not knowing its miraculous provenance.

Yes, but you know, the lowly watermen, they knew.

How do we know that?

Oh, St. John specifically notes it.

I’ll have to meditate on that the next time I pray those mysteries.

Why wait? Here’s my Bible!
