Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Mary had no doubts that her son, Jesus, would be able to somehow enable her friends to avoid the embarrassment of running out of wine at the wedding feast. Makes one wonder about the favors He must have quietly done for her all His life. Mary simply makes it possible by instructing the servants to do whatever He asked of them. They did and He took care of the problem. What do you sense Jesus is asking of you in order that He may do miracles in your life?
