Communion: John ii: 7, 8, 9, 10-11
The Lord said, "Fill the water-pots with water, and carry to the chief steward." When the chief steward had tasted the water made wine, he said to the bridegroom, "Thou hast kept the good wine until now." This first miracle Jesus did in the presence of His disciples.
May the operation of Thy power be increased within us. We beseech Thee, O Lord, that being quickened by Thy divine sacraments, we may by Thy bounty be prepared to receive that which they promise.
