Thought for Friday 21st January
“On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee…”
This famous miracle - John actually calls them “signs” - is full of deeper meanings and hints, some of which are probably too obscure for us to understand. But mention of the “third day” and Jesus’ odd words later - “My hour has not yet come” - suggest a link to his death and resurrection.
Reflection: Marriage feasts (as in Luke 22 & Rev 19) in the Bible are joyful celebrations of love - and they are places where men and women meet God.
