Yet Another Question Answered

There's a great painting behind the altar at St. John Cantius called "The Miracle of the Jug". (Reproduced over to the left.) I've wondered about the story behind the scene depicted and finally remembered to ask one of the priests about it. One day a girl was fetching water and on her way back home she dropped her jug and it broke. St. John Cantius happened to be there and miraculously repaired the jug, when the girl arrived back home with her newly repaired jug and water she noticed that the jug no longer held water, but sweet fresh milk. The milk was apparantly a huge deal at that time and place. I guess the lesson is that God will repair us, fill us up and give us more than we had hoped for. If not in this life then in the next.

And another "Cantian" bit of trivia. The gentleman in this picture is John Cantius Garand. He invented the M1 Garand rifle which was carried by many American servicemen in World War II and Korea. All told almost 5 and a half million of these rifles were produced.
