Word Wedding Vs. Miracle In The 2nd Luminous Mystery

I would like to communicate with someone at the decision level about the title of the 2nd Luminous mystery. The wedding at Cana clearly is not a mystery. Many of us pray the Miracle at Cana, which was specifically indicated in Pope John-Paul's instructions.


I would like to know if this error can be corrected. It is causing discomfort for many leaders, who make the change orally, though many read the word "wedding," believing that if it is in print it is correct. Could you put me in touch with someone who can help? Thank you very much.

Self-manifestation At The Wedding Of Cana
by: The Rosary Team

Perhaps this is just a case of semantics. After researching, the issue of the word "wedding" versus the word "miracle" when announcing the second Luminous Mystery doesn't seem important. We went to the Vatican's website where we found two references to this mystery.

In the Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, Blessed Pope John Paul II introduces this new mystery calling it Jesus' "self-manifestation at the wedding of Cana". You will find this phraseology in section 21 of that document.

In another document on the Vatican's website, where the Mysteries of Light are listed, the phrase, "The wedding feast of Cana" is used.

Because we know that words DO matter, let's take the Finding in the Temple as an example. The same argument can be placed there. There is no mystery in "finding". The mystery is that this mystery too was a self-manifestation.
