To Hear the Word of God: Homilies at Mass

Time after Epiphany to Septuagesima

SECOND SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY

Rom. 12, 6-16; JN. 2, 1-11.

SIMONE WEIL, the young French religious thinker of Jewish stock, once wrote: "It is a mistake to think that God is interested only in religion." In the same way it would be a mistake to identify the Church exclusively with ecclesiastical structures: with the Vatican, with dioceses, with parishes.

The Church has been described by Michael Novak in The Church and Mankind (Dogma, Volume I, "Concilium," p. 109) as "the consciousness of the Son of God--insight and love--taking root in the consciousness of men, sacramentally and otherwise."

At Cana Jesus revealed His glory by the beginning of His signs, and His disciples believed in Him. He gave them an understanding of where He stood on marriage, on family celebrations, on compassion for men in life's ordinary embarrassments-and He showed them a sign that was effective in producing faith. In other words He acted humanly, naturally, and He also acted sacramentally. Miss Weil probably meant to confine God's interest in religion to the second or sacramental area, but this would be a distinction our Lord could not suffer comfortably. His whole life was religious, in that He shared with men His view that the total complexus of human activity was oriented to God.
