Christ's Glory and Grace in Marriage
The Wedding of Cana (John 2); Matthew 19; I Corinthians 6
The people are still pretending to dance, but the wine has run out. Where we have so many false expectations of Marriage and Sex and so many failures, how does Jesus make marriage beautiful again? Jesus comes as the Good wine to fulfill the burden of the Law and in so doing he will both diminish and exalt marriage. He resurrects the cosmic vision of marriage "from the Beginning" but He transforms it into a Sacrament of something much bigger than itself.
