“THEY HAVE NO WINE”

***

Mary is concerned

no wine for celebration

Jesus creates wine

***

NOTE: Jesus’ first miracle was to turn water into wine. He did this because his mother, Mary, was concerned that a family did not have wine to celebrate a marriage. Mary is an example of the virtue of generosity toward others; she lacked the sin of envy.
