September 24th: Our Lady of Mercy
Gospel text
Jn 2:1-11
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” ...
Gospel's Commentary
Today we celebrate Our Lady of the Mercy, a great solemnity in Barcelona. In the Gospel we see that Mary attends the wedding at Cana, where «Jesus and his disciples had also been invited». Jesus, Mary and the disciples, that is, us! Never had a mother been able to choose her son. Much less has a son been able to choose his mother. Only Christ was able to. —This is why He made her totally perfect, and then He also gave her to us as our mother. We welcome St. Mary’s protection, “Comforter of the afflicted”.
