The Blessed Virgin Mary asks Jesus to perform His first public miracle at the Wedding Feast of Cana when the wine runs short.1 On the third day, a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” “Woman, how does your concern affect me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

When John baptized Jesus Christ in the Jordan River, the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove, descended upon the Messiah.1 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins. A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lordmake straight in the desert a highway for our God."

For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it is written by the prophet:

This is the miracle of Christmas. Celebrate this Christmas Season by joining the Missionaries of the Holy Family in prayer to strengthen your family life. We will be celebrating Mass on each of the nine days.

Through the Prophet Isaiah, God gives King Ahaz a sign, which is the prophecy of the birth of Jesus Christ by the Blessed Virgin Mary.The Lord said to Isaiah, “Take your son Shear-Jashub and go out to meet King Ahaz. You will find him at the end of the aqueduct that feeds water into the upper pool, near the road leading to the field where clothes are washed. Tell him to stop worrying. Tell him he doesn’t need to fear the fierce anger of those two burned-out embers, King Rezin of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah. Yes, the kings of Syria and Israel are plotting against him, saying, ‘We will attack Judah and capture it for ourselves.
