Q&A

Didn’t Jesus tell his Mother that she was out of line in trying to influence him at Cana?

Question:

I&#039;ve never understood why Catholics cite the story about the wedding at Cana (John 2:1–11) in reference to Mary&#039;s intercession with Jesus. Yes, Jesus did what Mary asked—but only after making it clear that it was not her place to ask him: &quot;Woman, what is this concern of yours to me?&quot; Isn&#039;t it obvious that he never intended Mary to have any say in his ministry?<br />
