Today is also the Optional Memoria of Our Lady on Saturday. In Sacred Scripture, there are not many recorded words of our Blessed Mother, but those we do have are precious. One such treasure is from the story of the wedding at Cana, where both Our Lord and His Mother were guests. On learning that the wine had failed, Mary goes straight to her Son to tell Him. When she returns to the servants she says, ‘Do whatever He tells you’. These words can serve as a guide for us in all the circumstances of our lives, asking of us first a deep listening of the heart, so that we can catch the echoes of His beloved Voice, and then carry out His Will with immediacy, precision and love. As with the wine jars, which were all filled, so with us.

May God bless you this day, in all that you undertake for Him.
