Sorry, I am a day late… but this is one of my favorite passages.
Christ’s first miracle takes place at a marriage feast. We know John’s gospel is full of symbolism, but this one is one of my favorite. The coming of Christ, and therefore his relationship with humanity is culminated in a nuptial relationship. He is in love with us. However, we sometimes live as if we didn’t have wine. We don’t recognize the joy of having Him. A Marriage with no wine would be a total failure, as living our life without Christ. We try to get by with the water that things offer us, but we need to turn to Christ with confidence, like Mary does, and ask for wine. He is the only one who can satisfy us. Let Him change the water of our daily activities to encounters with Him. Let Christ fill your life.
