March 19: This weekend, we have a common theme in our readings. WATER. It is a well known fact that over 65% of the Earth is covered with water. Water is essential for the existence of all living things. All forms of life need water to survive. Jesus’s need for water set the stage for today’s reading from the Gospel of John. It begins with Jesus’s need for water. It ends as he reveals the gift of living water that his coming brings. It will quench all thirst and sustain eternal life. We hear that water means life. Water gives life, water gives nourishment. The Samaritan women came to the well for water. What she received from her experience of Jesus Christ was Living Water. Jesus saw her as a child of God who needed to be set free. He offered her his love and presence. Today, Jesus Christ offers this water to all of us. We come to him and He gives us Life and Love and Hope. Let us continue this journey together.
