The Wedding at Cana

Self -Manifestation at The Wedding at Cana

The Second Mystery of Light: Self-Manifestation at The Wedding at Cana

The first of the signs, given at Cana, when Christ changes water into wine and opens the hearts of the disciples to faith, thanks to the intervention of Mary, the first among believers.

The role that Mary assumes at Cana accompanies Christ throughout his ministry. The revelation made directly by the Father at the Baptism in the Jordan and echoed by John the Baptist is placed upon Mary’s lips at Cana, and it becomes the great maternal counsel which Mary addresses to the Church of every age: “Do whatever he tells you.”

This counsel is a fitting introduction to the words and signs of Christ’s public ministry and it forms the Marian foundation of all the “Mysteries of Light”.
