Cana in Galilee: The First of the Miracles and Some Sacramental Theology

“There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding…Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee, and so revealed his glory, and his disciples came to believe in him.”

Why miracles? Why sacraments? Why did Jesus perform his first miracle in the context of a wedding celebration?

I’m working on a couple of presentations coming up in the next couple of weeks, so you’ll have to listen to my whole homily to get some answers to these questions!
