The wedding at Cana sets the scene for the beginning of Jesus’s ministry in the world (John 2:1-11). This passage is full of symbolic meaning. Jesus acts on behalf of the young couple, but John tells us the act is not just a miracle, but a “sign” of his coming glory. As a guest, Jesus brings new wine to the wedding feast. Later, Jesus will say that he is the bridegroom, who rejoices in his bride, the Church. How can we be a people who live fully in the “sign” and light of Christ’s abundant love?
