The Second Luminous Mystery: The Wedding at Cana (John 2: 5-7)
Christ turns a lot of water into wine
NB: Fulton Sheen’s Meditations on the Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary was writing many, many years before Pope John Paul II issued the Luminous Mysteries. Therefore, we will not have Sheen’s meditations for this set.
For each bead (1-10) in the decade, meditate (think) on the list below:
- Jesus, His Mother and disciples were invited to a wedding in Cana.
- During the wedding feast the wine ran short.
- Mary turned to Jesus: “They have no wine.”
- Jesus replied: “What would you have Me do? My hour has not yet come.”
- Mary said to the waiters: “Do whatever He tells you.”
- There were six stone water jars, each holding fifteen to twenty gallons.
- Jesus bids the waiters to fill the jars with water, and then draw some out and take it to the chief steward.
- The chief steward said to the groom: “Every man serves the good wine first… but you have saved the good wine until now.”
- At Mary’s request, Jesus worked His first miracle.
- By His presence, Christian marriage was raised to the dignity of a Sacrament.
Spiritual Fruit of the Mystery: To Jesus through Mary
Morning star, pray for us!
