The wedding at Canna

There are many instances in the Bible which proves the significance of intercession. But here, we are explaining the power of intercession of Mother Mary as indicated in the Holy Bible. It is clearly explained in St. John 2:1-11, the wedding at Canna.



Bible Verse (St. John 2:1-11)

1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."

 4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come."

 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

 7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.

 8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."

They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."

 11 This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

Explanation:

1. Our Holy Mother knows our needs:

Wedding of Canna is the first miracle that the Lord Jesus performed. Mother Mary realised that the wine was not sufficient. It would be a terrible shame for the hosts if such a thing was to happen. Mother Mary realised the agony that the hosts underwent, even without them telling her anything. Similarly our Mother of God understands and realises what her children (each one of us) require.

2. Do whatever the Lord has asked us to do:

Mother Mary told Jesus that there was no wine left. It was not yet time for the Lord God to perform miracles and declare to the world that he was the son of God. Thus the Lord asked her why she was involving him in this. But the Mother knew that her son would listen to her request and she just asked the servants: "Do whatever he tells you." Similarly, the Mother asks each one of us to do as the Lord has asked us to do. To follow the principles of the Church, pray and love every living being.

3. The Lord God listens to His Mother: Power of Intercession to Our Holy  Mother

The Lord Jesus asked the servants to fill the jars with water and blessed them. Immediately the water turns into wine! Please take note that the time for the Lord God to reveal had not yet come, but still he listened to his beloved Mother. This is the power of intercession of our Mother Mary. Won't the Lord God listen to his Mother even now? Surely he would.

Don't be afraid dear friends, don't be dishearted. Keep praying to our Mother Mary and through her intercession miracles would happen in your life.

Prayer:

Oh! beloved Mary, Mother of God....please remember each one of us, sinners. Please intercede for us and pray that happiness resides in this world, where disaster and worry strikes every moment.



Dear Mother Mary, please pray for us...
