Part 11

The Miracle at Cana: This is the third epiphany. In this icon, Mary is pointing us to Christ and saying, “Whatever He tells you to do, do it!” In the background there is the bride and groom. The groom has his hand raise in the sign of blessing. The man on the left is the father of the bride, who is distressed that he has run out of wine at this important moment in the life of his family. The servant is pouring water into the vessels and it is turning into wine. There will be plenty! Notice there seems to be an empty spot on the right—that is for you to come and join the festivities!

The chalice at the the top is copied from a beautiful silver chalice recently donated to our parish.
