“This was the first of the signs given by Jesus;
it was given at Cana in Galilee.”

The Gospel of this second Sunday of Ordinary Time continues the theme of the end of Christmas – revelation. Jesus is re­vealed to the world by his birth, by his baptism, and by his miracles – the “signs” as John calls them. The wedding in today’s Gospel is interpreted in many ways: today, reading the Gospel with the First Reading in mind, we can see it as an image of the way in which God is so close to his people, it is as though he is married to them. Thus Jesus, the spouse of the people, shows God’s close­ness by revealing his glory in this miracle.


O sing a new song to the Lord, sing to the Lord all the earth. O sing to the Lord, bless his name. Proclaim his help day by day, tell among the nations his glory and his wonders among all the peoples. Give the Lord, you families of peoples, give the Lord glory and power, give the Lord the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in his temple. O earth, tremble before him. Proclaim to the nations: “God is king.” He will judge the peoples in fairness.
