Catholics embrace the story of the wedding at Cana so they can enjoy their liquor and still be like Jesus. Weddings and other earthly celebrations are given the blessing of God because Jesus performed his first public miracle turning water into wine.
Of course, some Protestants might argue that they were simply using the wine to sterilize the water since they didn’t have the benefit of Louis Pasteur’s wisdom back in those days, and if they drank plain old water, they might get sick. So, yeah, this was a great miracle indeed.
Personally, I believe in moderation versus austerity or debauchery, but I think it was totally cool of Jesus to keep the party going like that, whatever your interpretation. Life simply wouldn’t be the same without celebration, good food, good drink, good friends.
So in this time of year where the harvest and winter celebrations abound, may your glass be ever full.
