There is so much to reflect upon with the Wedding Feast of Cana. This is our Gospel reading this Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time. Yes, we are officially back in Ordinary Time. We will climb all the way up to the 8th week in Ordinary Time before switching to Lent at the beginning of March.
The water is symbolic of the Old Covenant. Notice the water is specifically mentioned to be in "six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings." The relationship of the Jews to God in the Old Testament was not as vibrant as it could be. Jesus transforms the water into wine; he transforms the faith. Our relationship with God in the New Covenant is now something totally exhilarating and fulfilling. This is the power of the Holy Spirit. Notice our second reading is a description of all the gifts or charisms of the Holy Spirit.
