Communion – We, Jesus

Families of Cana live in the joy of the “Marriage of the Lamb” (Rev 19:9), of the “New Covenant” (Lk 22:30), in their daily lives, building the communion between husband and wife, parents and children, among brothers and sisters, in family and the Church – each one of us and Jesus. To deepen this mystery of communion, they pray this short prayer several times a day, “We, Jesus!”.

tanque 7In this way, they become part of the great mystery of faith, what we call “the communion of saints”, allowing them to participate with their small efforts and sacrifices in the work of the Jesus’s salvation, in keeping with the words of Saint Paul,

“It makes me happy to suffer for you , as I am suffering now, and in my own body to do what I can do make up all that has still to be undergone by Christ for the sake of his body, the Church” (Col 1:24).

Each little suffering is a drop of water poured into the chalice of the Blood of Jesus, as the mystery of the Eucharist reveals to us and as the miracle of Cana pre-announced.
