PM: Communion Fridays--2nd. Sunday Of Ordinary Time

There are three communion antiphons, each corresponding to the Gospel reading in the 3-year Lectionary. They will be taken in that order.
We shall rejoice in your salvation; and in the name of the Lord our God shall we place our pride. 
Ps. 19:6
The Communion antiphon for the 30th. Sunday in Ordinary time as well, we declare our trust and hope in God. Only He will lead us to the victory over sin and death through Christ.
Andrew said to his brother Simon: "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ); and he led him to Jesus. 
John 1:41, 42
We have found Him in Word and Sacrament. How many have we led to Jesus by our lives?
The Lord said: "Fill the jars with water and bring some to the master of the feast." When the master of the feast tasted the water, which had now become wine, he declared to the bridegroom:  "You have kept the good wine until now". This was the first sign which Jesus accomplished before his disciples. 
John 2:7, 8, 9, and 10-11
His first recorded miracle, the beginning of His proofs of divinity, a sign pointing to the Eucharist (the changing of wine into His Blood). He shows us He will not hold anything back.
