Second Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)

Official Translation

Reading 1 - Isaiah 62.1-5

For Zion’s sake will I not be silent,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
until her righteousness go out as brightness,
and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
The nations shall see your righteousness,
and all kings your glory,
and you shall be called by a new name,
which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
You shall also be a crown of beauty
in the hand of the Lord,
and a royal diadem
in the hand of your God.
You shall no longer be called Forsaken,
nor shall your land anymore be called Desolate,
but you shall be called My Delight,
and your land Married;
for the Lord delights in you,
and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
so your sons shall marry you;
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so your God will rejoice over you.

Reading 2 – 1 Corinthians 12.4-11

Brothers and sisters:
Now there are various gifts, but the same Spirit.
There are various services, and the same Lord.
There are various activities, but the same God, who works all of them in everyone.
But to each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
For one, through the Spirit, is given a word of wisdom,
and to another a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
to another faith, by the same Spirit;
and to another gifts of healings, by the same Spirit;
and to another workings of miracles;
and to another prophecy;
and to another discerning of spirits;
to another different kinds of tongues;
and to another the interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit produces all of these,
individually distributing to each as he wills.

Gospel – John 2.1-11

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee.
Jesus’ mother was there.
Jesus also was invited, with his disciples,
to the wedding.
When the wine ran out,
Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no wine.”
Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that
have to do with you and me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants,
“Whatever he says to you, do it.”

Now there were six stone jars for water
set there according to
the Jews’ way of purifying,
containing two or three ten-gallon-buckets apiece.
Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots with water.”
They filled them up to the brim.
He said to them, “Now draw some out,
and take it to the master of ceremonies.
So they took it.
When the master of ceremonies tasted the water
(now become wine),
and did not know where it came from
although the servants who had drawn the water knew,
the master of ceremonies called the bridegroom,
and said to him,
“Everyone serves the good wine first,
and when the guests have drunk freely,
then that which is inferior.
You have kept the good wine until now!”
This first of his signs,
Jesus did in Cana of Galilee,
and revealed his glory,
and his disciples believed in him.
