Dear Family of Mary!
John 2: 1- 11
On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples.
As our shipmate, Mary MacDonell, said, the wedding feast at Cana represents well what is going on in Medjugorje. The couple getting married at Cana can stand for all of us, for humanity. Both Jesus and Mary have been given to us by the Father, to help us in our struggle with evil, our struggle with life. They lived and still live with us.
When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Our Lady was looking out for the couple. She noticed that the wine had run out. That wine stands for grace, and she knows in our day that humanity is in danger of collapse because we have wandered so far away from God and His grace. We are running out of truth and light.
When she told Jesus that the wine was running out, Jesus replied “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” Jesus knew that if he did a miracle, there would be no turning back. His public ministry would begin. And it would lead to his crucifixion. This was a “Rubicon Moment” for Jesus. The decisive step that could not be reversed.
But Our Lady knew at Cana that that decisive step was necessary and this was the time. She told the servants to do what ever Jesus told them to do! Decision made!
Denis recently heard in his heart the words, “This is a Rubicon moment’, in terrms of Our Lady’s plan in Medjugorje. And so it is. We believe she has taken a decisive step, at the 40th Anniversary. It is a step that cannot be reversed, and will lead to a final confrontation. Just like Jesus’ Rubicon Moment at Cana, she is now at her Rubicon Moment in Medjugorje, decisively moving against the devil, declaring victory for her children.
Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast.” So they took it.
The servants are all of us who are responding to Our Lady’s call in Medjugorje. As Mary MacDonell said, we have been filling up those stone jars with all of our prayers, sacrifices, fasting, and suffering. This is our part in this work for salvation. We may not have understood it all these years, but every drop of prayer and sacrifice has been collected and is going to be turned into grace!
When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.”
The Steward (who represents the Church Hierarchy) had failed at his job of monitoring the wine and providing enough for the wedding, and was shocked that the good wine had been reserved for later. When the victory is won, those who should have been leading the way in this battle against evil will be shocked to see Our Lady and her little army actually winning the day. But God never picks the best. He is comfortable with the little and the humble.
This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him. (John 2:1-11)
I couldn’t help sharing this little reflection again. I believe that Jesus’ Rubicon Moment at Cana is now Mary’s Rubicon Moment in Medjugorje. She is going to be revealed just like Jesus was revealed, by the miracle that will happen. And the battle will be declared. No going back.
We need to stay very close to our Champion General, Mary, the Mother of Jesus. This is her hour, and she needs us. Pray (especially the Rosary), sacrifice, fast, adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, Confess, and read the Bible. We are in the crucial moment and our Mother needs us!
June 25, 2021 “Dear children! My heart is joyful because through these years I see your love and openness to my call. Today I am calling all of you: pray with me for peace and freedom, because Satan is strong and by his deception, wants to lead away all the more hearts from my motherly heart. That is why decide for God so that it may be good for you on the earth which God gave you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
