Jan 17

At the wedding of Cana in Galilee, Jesus turns vast amounts of water into wine and saves the wedding host from great embarrassment. While we rightly focus on Jesus and the disciples who ‘believe in him’, there is a key person of faith in this story who often goes unnoticed.

Mary begins this sequence of events with such conviction and faith in her son that she compels the stewards to ‘listen to him’. Her conviction rubs off on them, and soon the whole village of Cana has been transformed through the abundance of God.
