The Marriage Feast of Cana shows Mary in her motherly role as being very much interested in the practical needs of daily life. Confidence in Mary for our necessities is something that should spring from loving her. It is the very prayer that the Church puts on our lips. ‘We fly to thy patronage O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions in our necessities…’ In the ordinary things of life we must have confidence in Mary. Of course, when we pray we must realize that there is a world of difference between being really confident, and just hoping!
