The Blessed Mother instructs us, “Do whatever He tells you.” At Cana, this was as simple as filling stone jars with water. For spouses, it may be doing the dishes or coming home from work a little early. For parents it may be as simple as changing a diaper in the middle of the night.
The servants in Cana must have been shocked when the water they had procured (180 gallons, so it was a task that required hard labor) became wine. We will be shocked, too, when our seemingly thankless labors – the endless piles of laundry, the monotonous yard work, the daily effort of loving and forgiving our imperfect family members – yield miracles we never could have imagined. Jesus can do miracles with our simple acts of obedience to Him, if we only trust.
