Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

Gospel Passage
John 2:1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of
Jesus was there. 2 Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3
When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4
And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has
not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6
Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.” So they took it. 9 When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom 10 and said to him,
“Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 Jesus did this, the
first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
Questions for Discussion:
1. Mary acted on the young couple’s behalf even before they realized that they
had a problem. Do you realize how often Mary acts on your behalf with Jesus
before you realize you have a problem?
2. Mary’s advice to the stewards is the same she’d give to us: “Do whatever he
tells you.” Doing whatever Jesus tells us is the secret to happiness. How well
do you listen to what Jesus tells you? How well do you do whatever he tells
3. The wedding feast of Cana is the second of the five luminous mysteries of
the Rosary. What are the other four? [Hint: Matthew 3:16-17,
10:7-8, Luke 9:29-35, 22:19-20]
