DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU (JOHN 2:5) These words pronounced by Mary at the wedding feast at Cana were addressed to the servers when the wine ran short, and Jesus seemed less than concerned by the predicament of the newlyweds. Chaminade used this same expression, one of confident faith, to designate the vision and scope of the Marianist apostolic mission. What should the members of the Marianist Family do to further the Kingdom of God? The answer is, “Do whatever he tells you.” The Marianist mission is universal. It is open to all people, and is concerned with the whole person. The artist shows Mary standing between Jesus and the head-waiter. Jesus is the miracle worker. She is the go-between, instilling faith, hope, and charity in each one of us. She prepares us to do "whatever he tells us."
