THE GOSPEL

John 2:1-11

Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory.

“They have no wine.”
“So what?”
“Do whatever he tells you.”
From that instant she left it to him.

To us:
“do what he says:

love God,
love your neighbor,
make a home for the Spirit.”

We will.

Let us leave
 everything to you, Lord.
We want to trust you the way Mary did.

Please,
we are water.
 Turn us into wine.

THE FIRST READING
Isaiah 62:1-5

You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the Lord.

 You have come to us, loving us,
 and making us a jewel
in your crown.

We cannot be called “forsaken”
or our lands, “desolate”
anymore.

Your love will stay.
You will never take it away.


THE SECOND READING

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts
but the same Spirit.

Was Puccini’s
music for his ears alone?
Was Starry Night for Van Gogh’s eyes only?

Is discernment of spirit
 better than the act of prophesying?
Is it better to be a healer than a preacher?
Was Mother Teresa more important
than the Jesuit brother who
 answered the door?

Is green better than red?

All gifts are
 from the same Spirit.
 They are all a part of the whole
and given to each of us for each other
and for the common good.

Lord, help us understand.
Thank you for
your gifts.
