    John places Mary at the center of his narrative at both the beginning and the end of Christ’s public life. She is the instigator of His first miracle at Cana (interceding for the bride and groom), after telling the servants to “Do whatever he tells you.” And there she is once more at the foot of the Cross, charged by Our Lord with being the Mother of all believers. Is it any wonder that we believe she intercedes for us now with her son, just as she did at the wedding feast at Cana?
