Her Help, His Way

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; and both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

The Gospel according to John

Both the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Divine Son probably suffer a lot as some of us, Christians, accuse the former of „taking people away from Jesus”. While it is true that only Christ is, and always will be, the source and summit of our faith, His Mother's mission is to provide us with a spiritual ladder and jug so we may get closer to the Messiah, having greater share in His graces at the same time.

How this could be? Please take a closer look at the weeding at Cana:

As the weeding guests had gathered there and then, through the gentle words of Immaculata, experienced the love of God the Son, probably He – and not His Holy Mother – was more intensely admired, loved, and followed by the married couple.
