Bulletin Insert for January 20, 2019
Description: This bulletin insert for the 2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time is a reflection on the Gospel story about the miracle of changing water into wine during the wedding in Cana. John 2:1-11 is a good example of how to handle conflicts without sinning. Mary, the mother of Jesus, sees a need and wants Jesus to do something about it. She knows full well that only a miraculous intervention will solve the problem. She wants the divine in him to respond to her request, but the human nature of Jesus responds first: He doesn’t want to reveal his divinity with this kind of miracle. He’s eager to heal souls, not empty wine jars.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the 2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
