In Cana or Haiti, "do whatever He tells you"

One thing is for sure: Mary saw the predicament the wedding party was in. She went to Jesus. “They have no wine”, she said.

They don’t have shelter, their houses have been flattened, they don’t have parents, they have lost their children. They are still trapped under the rubble and they are crying for help. They don’t have medicine, they need someone who is a doctor now. Their limbs were crushed by the rubble, and had to be amputated without anaesthesia because there was none. Their cathedral is no longer. It’s all ruins. So beloved son, and beloved daughter, what are you going to do about it?’
Mary our mother is always interceding for us. She is saying something to you and me on behalf of her sons and daughters in Haiti. 'They have no wine'. May she intercede for all those who are suffering pain and loss, especially in Haiti today.
Excerpt of homily by Fr. Colman Mruma, preached on Sunday, January 17th at St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto. The Gospel reading is John 2:1-11.
