Water to Wine

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there…. When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’”

Meditating on John 2:1-11, we are present at the first public miracle that Jesus performed. A celebration, family dynamics, and Christ graciously providing the best wine. Find your favourite spot for prayer, grab your journal, and sit deeply with the yourself and the Lord for 20 minutes. May it be a blessing to you.

Contemplative at Home offers a guided prayer experience drawing on Ignatian spirituality and Lectio Divina.

John 2:1-11 is read from the NRSV

  1. Thanks Lissy. I recently came across this sonnet by Malcolm Guite entitled Miracle at Cana .

    Here’s an epiphany to have and hold,
    A truth that you can taste upon the tongue
    No distant shrines and canopies of gold
    Or ladders to be clambered rung by rung,
    But here and now amidst your daily living
    Where you can taste and touch and feel and see,
    The spring of love, the fount of all forgiving,
    Flows when you need it, rich, abundant, free.
    Better than waters of some outer weeping,
    That leave you still with all your hidden sin,
    Here’s a vintage, richer for the keeping
    That works its transformation from within.
    What price you ask me, as we raise the glass,
    ‘It cost our Saviour everything He has’.

I'd love to hear from you!
