  4. 4. Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do notwant you to be uninformed. You know that when you werepagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could notspeak. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speakingby the Spirit of God ever says “Let Jesus be cursed!” and no onecan say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit. Now there arevarieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties ofservices, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities,but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. Toeach is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the commongood. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance ofwisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according tothe same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to anothergifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working ofmiracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment ofspirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another theinterpretation of tongues. All these are activated by one and thesame Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spiritchooses.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaCantor: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!All: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!Cantor: I will love thee O Lord my strength: the Lord is my rock and my fortress.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!Gospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And with thy spirit.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John 2: 1-11.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.
  5. 5. On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, andthe mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples had alsobeen invited to the wedding. When the wine gave out, themother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesussaid to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? Myhour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Dowhatever he tells you.” Now standing there were six stone waterjars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty orthirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” Andthey filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Now drawsome out, and take it to the chief steward.” So they took it.When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, anddid not know where it came from (though the servants who haddrawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom andsaid to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and then theinferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you havekept the good wine until now.” Jesus did this, the first of hissigns, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and hisdisciples believed in him.The Gospel of Christ.
