"His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you.'"
This verse comes from the story of Jesus' famous water-into-wine miracle at the wedding feast at Cana, and it has a lot to teach us about the Christian life. Mary's words, "Do whatever he tells you," are not just for the servants. As the Navarre commentary notes, "These words of our Lady can be seen as a permanent invitation to each of us: 'in that all Christian holiness consists: for perfect holiness is obeying Christ in all things' (St Thomas Aquinas, Comm. on St John, in loc.)." If we truly believe that Jesus is the Son of God, how can we possibly do any less than to follow and obey Him? And yet, how often do I completely ignore His call? I'm a long way from perfect holiness, and clearly a long way from perfect faith.
