At Mass in Iquique Thursday morning, Pope Francis drew attention to the care Mary shows at the Wedding at Cana, pointing to her as an example of how we can help others share in the joy and celebration found in the Gospel.
"The Gospel message is a wellspring of joy… A joy that is contagious, passing from generation to generation, a joy that we have inherited," the Pope said Jan. 18.
"Like Mary at Cana, let us make an effort to be more attentive in our squares and towns, to notice those whose lives have been 'watered down,' who have lost – or have been robbed of – reasons for celebrating."
"Let us be attentive, then, to all situations of injustice and to new forms of exploitation that risk making so many of our brothers and sisters miss the joy of the party."
