To you, eating and drinking were the good things.
In the wedding at Cana,
you ate and drank with everyone.
When the wine ran out,
you turned water into wine.
The good wine.
This, the first of your signs you did.(1)
Then you had dinner with tax collectors and sinners.
You ate with people whom no one wanted to befriend.
“Those who are well have no need of a physician,
but those who are sick.”
So do you mean,
eating with sinners can heal them?
and a physician is basically the person who knows how to eat with sinners?(2)
And in the last supper,
you ate with your twelve disciples,
your closest friends.
and taught them the most important things:
Washing the disciples’ feet,
giving the new commandment (about loving people)
and sharing all your heart.(3)
Eating and drinking were the good times.
Truly, you chose the time to do precious things,
so that everyone may love God and love each other more.
I love this thing in you.
I’m becoming the person who knows how to eat
with you, family and everyone.
