Lent WK3B (2018)

As a Samaritan, the woman is considered an outcast by the Jews; as a known adulteress, she is scorned by her own village. With kindness and dignity, Jesus reconciles her to God. This gospel has long had a special place in baptismal catechesis. In the “water” He offers her (her and us), we are reborn in the life of the God of compassion and joy. May we meet Jesus at the wells of our lives and may we be Jesus at the well for those who struggle to know that love in their lives.
