2nd Sunday after the Epiphany
2nd Class, Green


Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui cæléstia simul et terréna moderáris : supplicatiónes pópuli tui cleménter exáudi; et pacem tuam nostris concéde tempóribus. Per Dñm.

Let us Pray:

O Almighty and everlasting God, who dost govern all things both in Heaven and on earth: mercifully hear the prayers of Thy people, and grant us Thy peace in our time. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity...


The marriage at Cana is commemorated in the Gosepl today (John 2:1-11): the first miracle of Jesus. Mary, full of charity, asks of Jesus His first miracle. Jesus, at the request of His Mother, anticipates the hour appointed for the manifestation of His Divinity to His Disciples, so that He puts His power at the service of His love.
