Monday of the Fourth Week of Lent | Ron and Lucy Werthman

Ron and Lucy Werthman

March 23, 2020

As part of our pilgrimage to the Holy Land, we were blessed to visit Cana.  According to the Gospel of John, this is where Jesus performed his first public miracle at the wedding feast, by changing water into wine.   When the wedding host ran out of wine, Jesus was asked by his mother Mary to intercede and a stressful situation was turned into a positive one.

Mary was the mediator.

In this special place, we were also able to renew our wedding vows.  The experience was overwhelming and brought back memories of our own wedding day over 45 years ago.  Throughout that time we have often prayed to Mary to intercede for us.  We are so lucky to have her on our side.

Mary is our mediator with Jesus.

Prayer:  Holy Mary Mother of God please help us in times of stress and ask your son Jesus to be with us in our hour of need.
