Preparing for this Sunday

Here is a reflection on this up coming gospel about the Samaritan Women who encounters Jesus at the well. Talk about life changing encounters. Read the reflection and prepare your mind and heart for the encounter that awaits you this third Sunday of lent.

Reflect on these words by Jean Vanier in light of the Gospel of the Samaritan woman: "Our brokenness is the wound through which the full power of God can penetrate our being and transfigure us in God. Loneliness is not something from which we must flee but the place from where we can cry out to God, where God will find us and we can find God. Yes, through our wounds the power of God can penetrate us and become like rivers of living water to irrigate the arid earth within us. Thus we may irrigate the arid earth of others so that hope and love are reborn."
