Actions Speak Louder Than Words
In the Gospel today we hear the story of the wedding feast at Cana. At this wedding feast Jesus performed his first miracle, and this miracle was prompted by the request of his mother. Mary continues to be an example for all of us. Not only should we request things from Jesus, we can turn to Mary and ask her to intercede for us. She reminds us to “do whatever he tells you.”
Doing what God asks isn’t always easy, but it is the source of salvation and brings hope to the world. Jesus began his ministry with the word “COME” when he selected apostles to come and follow him. The final request he made to his followers was to “GO” and proclaim the good news. As disciples who have been called to COME and follow Jesus, are we GOING to proclaim his message and share his mercy? Mary reminds us to “do whatever he tells you.”
Remember, actions speak louder than words. May we each use our gifts, talents and treasure for the building of God’s kingdom and for the betterment of our world. Through the intercession of Mary may our actions reflect our faith and bring hope and mercy to the world. Peace.
