We do well to heed Our Lady’s words at the wedding at Cana. When she knew that the wine had failed, she said to the servants, ‘Do whatever He tells you’.

There are many ways in which the ‘wine’ in our lives may fail. When we become aware, our task is to stand still, and listen. The Mother of God, our Mother, is surely there, as is her Son, and He will make clear to us what we have to do. He will also provide the grace to do it.

May God bless you today, in all that your life holds, both of pain and of joy.
