1 AT that time: And the
third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother
of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him,
They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine
hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto
you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the
manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor
of the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made
wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew
the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth
good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse:
but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
OFFERTORY. Ps. 118. The right hand
of the Lord hath the pre-eminence, the right hand of the Lord
bringeth mighty things to pass: I shall not die, but live, and
declare the works of the Lord.
GRANT, O Lord, we pray thee, that this oblation may in such
wise cleanse us from all our sins: that we thy servants, being
sanctified both in body and soul, may worthily offer unto thee
this our sacrifice. [Through.]
COMMUNION. St. John 2. The Lord saith unto
them, Fill the waterpots with water, and bear unto the governor
of the feast. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water
that was made wine, he saith unto the bridegroom, thou hast kept
the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus
before his disciples.
O LORD, who hast vouchsafed unto us to be made partakers of so
great a mystery; we humbly beseech thee, that thou wouldest render
us worthy thereby to enjoy the benefits of the same. [Through.]
