Narrative: Commemorating the first of Jesus’ miraculous signs, this shrine depicts the moment during the wedding at Cana when Mary instructs the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Guests surround the bride and bridegroom, here the Russian Snow Princess and the Nutcracker. The protesting Jesus sits across from Mary, who instructs the kitchen staff below. They stand in front of the six water jars. Meanwhile, the pastry chef brings on the wedding cake.
The Holy Spirit, here the bluebird of happiness, perches on the balcony high overhead. An image of the cross is centered on the face of the balcony, reminding us that with this miracle Jesus began his journey toward Calvary.
Wedding Card Message:
With love on your Wedding day and always. Love is patient, love is kind. It … rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
