NO MORE?

 
"They have no more wine." —John 2:3
 

We also say we have no more money, no more time, no more hope, peace, joy, etc. Although the Lord has promised to provide all our needs, we sometimes seem to be lacking our "daily bread" (Mt 6:11).

When we have "no more," we should listen to Mary and do whatever Jesus tells us (Jn 2:5). If we simply obey Him, He will take the water of our insufficiency and transform it into the wine of His plenty.

Jesus has given us hundreds of commandments, and by His grace we can obey them all. The center of all these commandments are those which Jesus gave us a few hours before His death on the cross. At the Last Supper, Jesus gave four commands: Take, eat, drink, and do the Last Supper in memory of Him (Mt 26:26-27; Lk 22:19). If we do these commands, we will make present Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. From the crucified Christ, blood and water flow, providing the needs of all people (see Jn 19:34).

Do whatever Jesus tells you. Live the Mass. Make it the center of your life. Receive everything you need. Be deprived "no more."

 
Prayer: Father, may I let You provide for me royally (see Phil 4:19).
Promise: "It is one and the same Spirit Who produces all these gifts, distributing them to each as He wills." —1 Cor 12:11
Praise: Praise the risen, eucharistic Jesus! Alleluia! "To Him be glory forever and ever" (2 Tm 3:18).
