"We hear of the conversion of water
into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion
is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold
the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters
the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that
God loves us, and loves to see us happy. The miracle in question was
only performed to hasten the operation, under circumstances of present
necessity, which required it."
