Hopefully every one of us understands that there is only one thing that satisfies the human heart. If any of us have ever tried to ignore God and pursue happiness apart from him, we have learned… or are learning that one day that wine will run out and there is only one person who can restore it. At the wedding in Cana, we find a symbolic miracle for the whole of Christ’s ministry to us.
We don’t always appreciate the sacrament of baptism as much as we can. It is a sacrament where heaven is opened up to us, where the Holy Spirit descends upon us, and where we hear God say, “You are my beloved child, with you I am well pleased.” How did we receive this great gift? Through God humbling himself and becoming one with those in need.
