Wednesdays with the Saints
Evening Prayer Service
This Wednesday, we remember the Virgin Mary. Little is known about her life beyond her extraordinary role in the conception and birth of our Savior. She was present at most of the important events of her son’s life, and scriptures record her memorable responses to the angel Gabriel, her cousin Elizabeth and her son on two accounts.
However, her words to the servants at the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee are perhaps the most instructive to us all. “Whatever he says to you, do it.” Mary always sought to divert attention away from herself to our Lord and is often movingly depicted in art receiving the Annunciation from the Angel Gabriel, holding or pointing to the baby Jesus or cradling the body of Jesus after the crucifixion.
