Jerusalem: the “Upper Room” or Cenacle

J. Gil

Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. These solemn words of St John, which are so familiar to us, take us straight into the intimate gathering in the Upper Room, or Cenacle. Tags: Eucharist, Faith, In the footprints of our Faith

Mons. Javier Echevarría

Undoubtedly we have to accept the teachings of the Church faithfully; but it is also necessary for our faith to find expression in the whole of our lives, to be shown in all of life’s circumstances, both the ones that seem important and the little occupations that make up the fabric of our daily living" Tags: June 26, trust, Year of Faith

The Wedding Feast at Cana

J. Gil

“There was a wedding feast at Cana in Galilee” (John 2:1). St John is the only evangelist who tells the story of the first miracle of Jesus, which he worked at a wedding celebration in Cana. At the request of Our Lady he turned the water into wine. It was also in Galilee that he worked the second of his miracles, the curing of the sick son of a court official, at Capharnaum (see John 4:46-51).
