John 2.1-12

Jesus invites each of us into an ever-deepening relationship with Him. He is the spiritual Bridegroom of each soul.

Then I heard something like the sound of a great multitude or the sound of rushing water or mighty peals of thunder, as they said: ‘Alleluia! The Lord has established his reign, (our) God, the almighty. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, his bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment.’ (The linen represents the righteous deeds of the holy ones.) Then the angel said to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb.‘” (Revelations 19.6-9)

The Wedding Feast

At the Cana wedding banquet,
His mother said, “The wine is through”.
Though His hour had not come yet,
She told them, “Do what He tells you.”

With plain water, the jars were filled;
The servers did what they were told.
By this sign, scripture was fulfilled —
An abundance of wine then flowed.

Each soul’s called to this wedding feast,
As server in Bridegroom’s employ:
With faith and love to serve the least,
Yielding an abundance of joy.

The Lamb builds love with unity;
His kingdom is community.

May the Bridegroom lead our souls to serve in union with Him and to build up His kingdom with faith and joyful charity.
