This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Do what ever He tells you!!

Dear Family of Mary!
We find ourselves
still trying to get to know Mary a little more! Today we can enjoy the
Wedding Feast at Cana. Our Lady speaks her last words for us in the
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. 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."
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. 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." This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at
Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in
. (Jn 2: 1-11)
Again, there are too
many details for this not to be an eye witness account. Jesus and Mary
were at the wedding together. Our Lady, being a woman, notices that the
wine has run out. She knows what it takes to put on a party! And she has
a heart of compassion. So she takes action. She tells her Son to do
something! "They have no wine."
Our Lady is just as observant about our lives. She notices when we run
out of hope, or energy, or we lose our focus. She notices the details of
our lives and is ready to help out. What does she do? She tells her
Son! This is intercession!
And after another
normal bit of banter with His mom, Jesus gets ready to act. And Our Lady
takes the cue and tells the servants: "Do whatever he tells you."
Her last words. Her greatest advice! Her deepest hope for us. That we
would do whatever Jesus tells us to do. Because Jesus will tell us to do
what is best for us and for all those we love and serve. His words to
us will bring life. His directions to us will heal and change us as we
The miracle at Cana
was extravagant and overboard! Six stone jars, gallons and gallons of
wine! Why? Because Jesus loves us, and His desire is that we receive
extravagant amounts of love from Him. All that is needed is that we do
whatever He tells us!
Our Lady tells us:
March 25, 2002"Dear
children! Today I call you to unite with Jesus in prayer. Open your
heart to Him and give Him everything that is in it: joys, sorrows and
illnesses. May this be a time of grace for you. Pray, little children,
and may every moment belong to Jesus. I am with you and I intercede for
you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
To do whatever Jesus
tells us is to be in unity with Him. Our Lady desires it! She is
telling Jesus all about us. He will see to the miracles!
