Today marks the completion of the first of three novenas of petition. I pray that this novena is already conferring graces on those saying it and those for whom it is being said.
Day 10, Saturday November 10th, Luminous Mysteries
Jesus again reveals Himself to us in the second Luminous Mystery. When His Mother comes to Him with the dilemma that the wedding party has run out of wine, He says to her, “Dear woman, why do you involve Me?” In saying this, Jesus reveals to us that He has not come for Himself. This is not His problem. He has come to serve, not to be served. He shows compassion for the bride and the groom. He converts the water into wine—the common into the finest. Likewise, He has come to convert us, common sinners into faithful believers—the finest to be presented to the “Master of the banquet.”
Do I recognize that, like Jesus, I too am called to serve? Am I prepared to be converted from the common to the finest?
