6. le nozze di cana


'Whatever he tells you' (Jn 2, 5)

(From the Bible the work reference tracks produced by Mosaic School of Friuli and, in short, the comment / explanation of Paolo Orlando author of the artworks. Ph.: Ulderica Da Pozzo)

Jn 2, 1-11
            On the third day there was a wedding feast at Cana in Galilee, and was the mother of Jesus. 2FU Jesus also invited to the wedding with his disciples.
            When they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." And Jesus replied: "Woman, what do you want from me? It has not yet come my time. " His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he tells you."
            Nearby stood six stone water jars for the ritual purification of the Jews, each holding from eighty to one hundred and twenty liters. And Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water"; And they filled them to the brim. He told them, "Now just get out and take it to the one who directs the banquet." So they took it.
            As he tasted the water become wine, the one who ran the banquet - which he did not know where it came from, but the servants knew who had taken the water - called the bridegroom and said to him: "Everyone put on the table the good wine at the beginning and, when you are already drunk a lot, an inferior one. But you have kept from the good wine until now. "
This, in Cana of Galilee, was the beginning of the signs performed by Jesus; He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
            Maria, almost hidden behind Jesus, makes her intercession for the newlyweds and, together, invited the attendants to obedience to her Son.
            Jesus, with the inevitable roll of the Word of God in his left hand, stretches out his right arm and, commanding to pour the water in the jars, completes the transformation of water into wine.
            While the bride and groom, dressed as a king and a queen, do not seem to notice anything, the chief of the attendants tasted with a glass that the miracle happened.
            The scene appears flattened, with no illusion of deep space: building, couple, table, orderlies, jars, are all brought to the foreground, in front of Jesus and Mary. As always in Christian iconography, the real space is that of the beholder, it is the same life of the viewer to form the meaningful context of the scene.
