New Evangelizers Post: No Prayer Too Small

I have a new article up at

On the third day there was a wedding in 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.” [And] Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:1-5)

There are many lessons to take from Christ’s first sign at Cana.  But there is one particular part that I think should be addressed.  Notice that the first miracle that Jesus performed was not one of healing or one of glorious light like the Transfiguration.  

Jesus made more booze.

Would the world have ended if they ran out of wine?  No.  Would someone have died or lost their soul if they didn't have any more adult beverages?  Again, no.

So why does Jesus go out of His way to help out with, what was essentially, was just a big party?
I think it is to remind us that the little things must also be given to the Lord.
