‘In everybody it is the same God at work in them all.’

In these readings we ponder our gifts. We see Jesus’ first miracle, the first time he manifests his divine gifts, the first time ‘he revealed his glory’. In his letter to the Corinthians, St Paul speaks of our many gifts, the variety of charisms which all come from the same Spirit. Our individual calling reflects our gifts which we are to use for good in our world.

Our gifts are to do God’s work in the world: through our hands and feet, hearts and minds. We realise that perhaps our greatest gift is God’s presence within us, keeping us focused, guiding our actions. Let us strive to free up our gifts so that our hands and feet, hearts and minds can bring God’s goodness to all we meet.
