Wedding at Cana

God's grace  can work little miracles in marriages today

by Sister Agnes Fischer

Thanks to the miracle of Jesus at the wedding feast at Cana, his disciples believed.

Thanks to the “miracles” in Christian marriages, we believe.

  • The miracle of love that doesn’t turn water into wine, but human selfishness into paternal, maternal and conjugal love.
  • The miracle that turns a couple into co-creators with the Father, co-redeemers with the Son and co-consolers with the Holy Spirit.
  • The miracle of love and pardon so that the wedding wine never runs out.
  • The miracle of journeying together to the end, rejoicing in the fruits of their love.

All these miracles can be ours when we combine the “water” of our efforts with the “wine” of God’s grace.

Beautiful words. I love the co-creators phrase. The trinity does play a huge role in our marriage. I just read this to my husband of 33 years. Thank you.

We have been married for 72 years and I believe in the miracle of love. Tom isn’t Catholic but acts more Christian then a lot of us. We have been blessed in life even though several said such a marriage can’t last. Thank you God!

As a married couple, 53+ years, we enjoy the Miracle/Blessing of our co-creation leading to loving our 8 grandchildren and our 2 (so far) great-grandchildren! Praise and Thanks to God!

Love the metaphor "water" our efforts, "the good wine", God's sweet grace.

Thank you Sister Agnes, for the very “timely “ message in my life. So we’ll said.
