A wedding is a time of joy, a gathering of family and friends. Today’s story sets the scene for the beginning of Jesus’s ministry in the world. Jesus is a guest who brings new wine to the wedding feast. He fulfils the promises of the old prophets. This is the third ‘manifestation’ of Jesus; The Epiphany, The Baptism and now today Cana. The Gospel ends with the words “Jesus let his glory be seen, and his disciples believed in him.” This raises expectations, an new exciting beginning, a foretaste of his glory.
