Sunday Sermon and Some Other Stuff

21 Jan

“Men are what their mothers made them.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Another sock monkey hat morning. The snow from yesterday was all melted but it was bitterly cold greeting at the door before Mass. The warm smiles and hugs from friends more than made up for the cold. I had my Matchbox cars for three little boys in one pocket and a stuffed alligator for Avery in the other. She is so adorable.

Today’s Gospel was the story of the wedding in Cana.

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jn 2:1-11

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 

When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 

And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? 

My hour has not yet come.” 

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” ………….

My take on it… four little words… LISTEN TO YOUR MAMMA.

This was the first of the miracles that Jesus performed. He turned water into wine. Mary didn’t tell Jesus what to do. She only suggested that there was no more wine and left the rest up to her son. She raised her son properly and he respected her wishes. A good Gospel story.

After Mass, a quick coffee with Mr. Jerry and a long stop at the grocery store. It warmed up enough in the late afternoon to go for a brisk walk. Funny, the colder it is, the faster I walk. While I was walking, I received a text from my son asking if I wanted to FaceTime and see the grandchildren. I scurried even faster, but took two seconds to capture a quick snap of the glorious sunset.

“Hi Gamma!”

A glorious grand-daughter and a glorious sunset. A perfect Sunday.
