an ongoing testament to life

Certain ironies and paradoxes in life continue. In a land that purports to celebrate religious freedom we also support abortion which costs the lives of millions.

At the wedding at Cana we see Jesus' celebration of the marriage between a man and woman and his celebration of the life of children coming from such a union. In addition, there is the creation of wine for festal celebrations such as the wedding at Cana and the union between Christ and His Bride at the altar. Jesus' first sign points to this union which is seen in his giving of the Last Supper, his appearance to the disciples after his resurrection, and the eternal banquet described in Scripture.

The wedding at Cana is a good picture of what is truly worth celebrating, especially at a time like this.
