Cana


Cana is a small town in Galilee where Jesus performed his first public miracles, recorded in the Gospel of John 2:1-11. Jesus was attending a wedding feast with his mother and his disciples when the hosts ran out of wine. At his mother's urging, Jesus changed water in jars used for ceremonial washing into wine. Today there is a small church known as the Franciscan Wedding Chapel where this miracle is said to have taken place.

The altar of the church


Couples in our group were able to renew their wedding vows in this lovely church.

Beneath the church is a jar believed to be one of the six mentioned in John's Gospel.

Would you care to purchase some Cana wedding wine? Several shops near the church will gladly sell you some!

  25. Sue, what a blessing it must be to actually walk in the footsteps of Jesus! How cool to see places where Christ performed such miracles like turning the water into wine. What is it like to be in these spots? Do you get the goosies? Does it feel like Jesus is right there beside you? I would think both apply, right? Great photo share. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friend, and thanks for hosting the mid-week photo fun!
