Why is our Marriage Preparation Program called "Pre-Cana?"

In John 2: 1-12, there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee with the mother of Jesus present. Jesus and his disciples had likewise been invited to join in the celebration. His presence and participation at the wedding not only sanctified the marriage but also festive celebrations and togetherness. Jesus recognized the Holy Spirit through Mary, and granted this first miraculous sign--changing the blessed water into wine! What was Jesus trying to do? He was preparing for weddings-- of God with humanity! Jesus comes into our home to sanctify our daily life.
