For Your Reflection:

3RD Sunday of Lent
In today’s gospel the Samaritan woman asks Jesus for water, an image of our thirst for God.  Jesus offers living water, a sign of God’s grace flowing from the waters of baptism.  The early church used this gospel and those of the next two Sundays to deepen baptismal reflection during the final days of preparation before baptism at Easter.  As we journey to the resurrection feast, Christ comes among us in word, bath, and meal – offering us the life-giving water of God’s mercy and forgiveness.
