“Further, Christ shows that the greatest possible honor is owed to parents by the fact that, out of respect for his Mother, he decided to work a miracle that he had not wanted to perform.”

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John 2, 1; PG 73, 225.

A great view from a church father on Jesus’s interaction with the Virgin Mary at the Wedding of Galilee. How would someone respect their parents?
