Lesson 8: “Do Whatever He Tells You”
In the Wedding at Cana and at the foot of the cross we encounter Jesus intimately speaking with his mother, and in each of these scenes from Sacred Scripture we discover more about discernment: that trusting obedience is paramount, and that our Lord uses Our Lady to help us throughout our lives as model and intercessor.
1.How does the Wedding at Cana strike you? How would you describe this scene to a nonbeliever?
2. What are the things you have done/will do to foster a better relationship with the Blessed Virgin Mary?
3. How does Mary show you the way to your vocation?
4. Are you willing to become a disciple like Mary, to “do whatever he tells you”?
“The cost of obedience is small compared with the cost of disobedience.” -St. Augustine of Hippo
