Vatican City, Jun 8, 2016 / 05:09 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In an in-depth look at Jesus’ first miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding feast in Cana, Pope Francis pointed to several key moments in the scene that illuminate our understanding of Christ.One of these key moments, he said, comes with Mary’s observation that newlywed couple’s resources have depleted, and that at a certain point “they have no wine.”“How is it possible to celebrate the wedding and have a party if you lack what the prophets indicated was a typical element of the messianic banquet?” the Pope asked.While water is necessary to live, “wine expresses the abundance of the banquet and the joy of the feast,” Francis said, noting that “a wedding feast lacking wine embarrasses the newlyweds – imagine finishing the wedding feast drinking tea?

David Konderla will be ordained and installed as the Bishop of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Currently, the Bishop-elect serves as the Director of Campus Ministry for St. Mary’s Catholic Center, the campus chaplaincy for Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.A crosier is a hooked staff – based on the shape of a shepherd's staff – carried by bishop...

John Cardinal Njue, the Archbishop of Nairobi last weekend signed up for the HeForShe Campaign that seeks to build a global solidarity movement for gender equality.“Today I commit to supporting the HeforShe campaign as a strategy to strengthen the call for gender equality which will go a long way in supporting the boy-child initiative in our Archdiocese of Nairobi,” Cardinal Njue said.The Cardinal signed up for the campaign during the Annual General Meeting of the Catholic Men Association of the Archdiocese of Nairobi.“The Catholic Church has never shied away from issues of gender inequalities that face our society today.

We are all equal in the eyes of God,” the Cardinal emphasised.In his speech addressed to the Catholic Men Association, Cardinal Njue urged men to mentor the boy-child.“I am happy to note that today we are l...
