Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, John 2:1-11, Art and Reflection

Wedding Miracle at Cana, Painting by Ronald Raab, CSC 2021

The image of the wedding feast speaks to us of God’s love as covenant. This covenant of love connects heaven and earth in Christ Jesus. This love is bountiful.

I am covenantal love…

Before you ask me to help you.

Before you know you are hungry.

Before you thirst.

Before you know your need.

I am covenantal love…

Before your body tightens in fear.

Before your relationships splinter.

Before your lips parch from slander.

Before your shallow breath.

I am covenantal love…

Before your foolish actions.

Before your resistance to me.

Before your undesirable thoughts.

Before your careless neglect.

I am covenantal love…

Before your addiction.

Before your rage.

Before your desire for help.

Before your constant control.

I am covenantal love…

Before you pray.

Before you breath.

Before you let go.

Before you were born.

  1. Beautiful art and reflection. I pray for all Priests the bridge that connects us to heaven. You baptize us, you forgive us our sins, you bring heaven in Body and Blood and feed us, you proclaim the word and teach us, you anoint us with oil on our death bed to prepare us for our journey to the other side. I pray that my heart will burst open with His Love and radiate to all I meet. May you have a most Blessed Week.
