Mary in the Wedding…
The wedding happened at Cana in Galilee
Also marks the ministry of Mary
That she looks at what was needed
And then to her son, she’d humbly plead.
There is only one thing, from us she demands
To do whatever it is that Jesus commands
And thus when the lack of wine came to Jesus’ hearing
He readily said, it is not a perfect timing.
But then Mary, with such trust, asked the servants
To obey what Jesus wants
Seeing the need for the host not to be ridiculed
Jesus had the jars of water to be filled.
Jesus demands the water can now be served
Knowing it’s already a first-class wine on reserved
Though the servants knew from what the wine is made up
They did not tell, as Jesus would be in ‘mishap’.
The chief steward wondered about the best drink so far
Only to comment, it should have been served long before,
Only the servants knew, it was because of Mary
who told them to do what Jesus asks of them obediently.
So Mary, thanks for looking at our lack and need
And with such humility to Jesus you plead
Obtain for us the grace to have you as our mother
who always supplies for the needs of your children dear.
Oh Jesus, thanks for acknowledging Mary’s trust on you
And for giving us what we need to grow
Help us to be trusting to you always and everywhere
Just by this, I believe, and all else matter.
