In this Holy Mass, we are the invited guests of the wedding feast of the Lamb where heaven and earth embrace. The priest is the stand-in for Christ the bridegroom. Even the servers and the ministers can be seen to take the place of his groomsmen. And a miracle also takes place here, in the presence of the disciples and the invited guests. At that event in the village of Cana, water had been changed into wine. At the event of this Mass, the bread and the wine is changed into the eternal body and blood of Christ- Christ the bridegroom who gives himself to the bride, his Church.
May our presence at and our participation in this Mass in the company of our mother Mary, give us a foretaste of the Banquet of Heaven where we hope to look upon the face of God in Jesus Christ our Lord, our hunger satisfied or thirst quenched in his presence forever.
