聖母進教之佑 特別為中國教會祈禱 – 若望福音 2:1-11

在加納婚宴把水變成酒的奇蹟,跟其他奇蹟很不同。耶穌多次把人治癒,令瞎子復明,祂若不行這些奇蹟,那些人便要繼續受苦。雖然在婚宴上沒有為賓客預備足夠的酒,確實會令主人蒙羞,但即使耶穌沒有把水變成酒,後果也算不上很嚴重。聖母告訴祂酒不夠之後,耶穌本來沒打算行奇蹟,也因為聖母的轉告而改變初衷。

聖母就是這樣留意她子女的需要,默默為我們轉求。讓我們也效法聖母,只簡單的向天主訴說我們的需要,由祂決定在祂選擇的時候,以祂的方式回應我們的祈禱。進教之佑,為我等祈。

Blessed Virgin Mary, Help of Christians – World Day of Prayer for China – John 2:1-11

The miracle at Cana is quite different from the other miracles that Jesus performed. Jesus had healed many people. He restored the vision of the blind. If He chose not to perform these miracles, many people would have to continue with their suffering. Not having enough wine in a wedding would be embarrassing, but even without Jesus’ intervention, the consequences would not be as bad. After Mary told Jesus that there was not enough wine, even though Jesus did not intend to perform any miracle, He changed His mind because of His mother’s words.

Mother Mary is so attentive to her children’s needs. She intercedes for us always. Let us learn from her. We should simply tell God our needs, and let Him decide the best time and the best way for Him to respond to our prayers. Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.
