2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Readings: Isaiah 62:1-5; Corinthians 12:4-11; John 2:1-12 

Originally delivered on January 15, 1989

In this week’s Gospel we hear of the first miracle at the wedding of Cana. We are invited to see Mary as a symbol for the Church itself.  Furthermore, we are challenged to be like Mary and get involved.  And in the second reading, Paul tells us that each of us is uniquely gifted.  Do we believe it?  Are we brave enough to use that gift to make glorious things for God?  Anne Frank and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were both ordinary people.  We too are ordinary people.  How might we make our light shine as they did?
