For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, I do believe that things happen for a reason and even though there is mystery surrounding that statement, my actions and reactions can be demanding in my search for answers. Sometimes I get over frustrated or even angry when I don't get IT; whatever IT is. It could simply be that I don't slow down my thinking or my actions enough to allow myself to take in the meaning of a sign. Please help me to adjust my energy so that I can clearly interpret a sign from You when it appears. I pray for Your Divine Assistance to give me the wisdom to accept and appreciate all the mysteries of Life as they occur.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John
1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2 Jesus and His disciples were also invited to the wedding.
3 When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine."
4 (And) Jesus said to her, "Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come."
5 His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever He tells you."
6 Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
7 Jesus told them, "Fill the jars with water." So they filled them to the brim.
8 Then He told them, "Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter." So they took it.
9 And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom
10 and said to him, "Everyone serves Good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the Good wine until now."
11 Jesus did this as the beginning of His signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed His glory, and His disciples began to believe in Him.
