(often badly translated) is very intimate, "Woman, what is this between you and me? My time isn't here yet." But at her direction, "Do whatever he tells you," the wedding feast arrives. At such an occasion it was right to say, "Most Holy Theotokos, save us!"

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say - A Reflection A BOOK OF EVERYTHING - October 6, 2013 Last year on retreat at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Mass, on my birthday, the monks sang this hymn, I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, at Holy Mass.

In Memoriam Seamus Heaney. THE CITY AND THE WORLD - August 30, 2013 ... the altar rails and received the mystery on my tongue, returned to my place, shut my eyes fast, made an act of thanksgiving, opened my eyes and felt time starting up again. It was phenomenally refreshing and, when I began to admit to myself that I was losing faith in it, I was very sorry. Intellectually speaking, the loss of faith occurred offstage, there was never a scene where I had it out with myself or another. But the potency of those words ['transubstantiation' and 'real presence'] ...http://jesuitjoe.blogspot.com/2013/08/in-memoriam-seamus-heaney.html
