    Sermon 628 : The Wedding Banquet That Overflows With Wine : 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    We begin Ordinary Time with the wedding at Cana, a rich, spiritual story with great implications for the Church. Both weddings and wine are consistently used symbols in scripture, and each is utilized to a powerful degree to explain the Incarnation, grace, the Sacraments, and the fulfillment of God's love for us.

Many years ago the teacher in my bible study said Jesus did not literally turn the water into wine. I remember challenging her on this; I wanted to believe that. The discussion left me to extensive thinking on what I settled in as the flavor added to the wedding by Jesus' presence. I still believe in my heart He did turn the water into wine, although I am now finding it all more profound. Everything is all so connected, blended, interweaved. It’s that through, in and with Him thing. This homily has helped to kind of fill in some gap or something I've had on this. Thank you for that.

p.s.…. The angels were singing in my sleep again last night. Am I dreaming, imagining or just losing' it?

Peace be with you my Dear Father Barron and thank you!This most profound statement of our BLESSED MOTHER MARY,"do whatever my SON tells you."i believe this is key in living the abundant life of JESUS CHRIST,we are all called to.During the Sacrament of pennance a Catholic priest once told me that regardless of what people think of the BLESSED MOTHER,SHE is indeed the Mother of us all.i thank our LORD JESUS while he was yet on the cross, giving humanity HIS beautiful MOTHER as ours.PRAISE BE JESUS MI IMMACULATA

In the spirit of transformation, do we, ordinary people, through Mary's intercession, and her Son's miraculous Gift, also become vessels? Jesus does not disrespect the ordinary wine, but elevates it, as you said. Are we elevated, as Church, to be part of this Divine marriage?
God Speed!

I love the allusion to the Blessed Mother's prophetic ministry: Do whatever Jesus tells you! Could this be one of the reasons why Mary is referred as "Queen of Prophets" in Litany?

Does anybody else see the melody in these readings? First God reminds us about our relationship with Him and then in the gospel He almost seems to whisper how. It’s very beautiful.

Fr. Barron:

Thanks for explaining so well the metaphorical meaning in today’s gospel on the wedding feast at Cana. But, concerning the literal meaning, did Jesus really change water into wine there? What are we to believe on this level?
