Christ’s first public miracle was at the wedding in Cana at which His Disciples and His Mother were present. Christ blessed water to become wine. It is this first miracle that through His close relationship with His Mother that we can learn from the words of Mary to all that follow Him, “Whatever He says do it”. Amen.Amen.Amen. The icon reveals the sign of most Apostles that when they were called, they left everything and followed. Whatever Christ touches, always becomes the best within its nature, such is the blessing of water into wine.
