Readings and Homilies for January 19-20, 2019 (English and Español)
On the weekend of January 19-20, we marked Jesus' first miracle, turning water into wine at the wedding at Cana. In their homilies, both Fr. Newton and Fr. Mark talk about the importance of marriage throughout sacred Scripture as a metaphor for God's love for His people. Fr. Newton also tied the miracle back to the Christmas season: Along with the visit from the Magi and the Baptism of Jesus, the miracle at Cana forms the "trilogy of the Epiphany," Jesus' manifestation to the world. Fr. Mark's homily projected forward to Jesus' death on the cross, His ultimate act of self-sacrificial, marital love for all people.
Additionally, Fr. Mark discussed the crucifix newly suspended above the altar in the worship space at Saint Andrew. He is looking for feedback, so please call or email with your thoughts!
