JESUS, our Way, our Truth, and our Life!

March 19, 2017
Third Sunday of Lent

So he came to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.  Jacob's well was there, and so Jesus, wearied as he was with his journey, sat down beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."  For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?" For Jews have no dealings with  Samaritans.  Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, `Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."  The woman said to him, "Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; where do you get that living water?  Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from  it himself, and his sons, and his cattle?"  Jesus said to her, "Every one who drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."  The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw." Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
The woman answered him, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You are right in saying, `I have no husband'; for you have had five husbands, and he whom you now have is not your husband; this you said truly." The woman said to him, "Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship." Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.  You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."  The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things." Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am he."
Just then his disciples came. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but none said, "What do you wish?" or, "Why are you talking with her?"  So the woman left her water jar, and went away into the city, and said to the people, "Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?" They went out of the city and were coming to him.
Meanwhile the disciples besought him, saying, "Rabbi, eat." But he said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know." So the disciples said to one another, "Has any one  brought him food?" Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to accomplish his work.  Do you not say, `There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? I tell  you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white  for harvest. He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, `One sows and another reaps.' I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor."  Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me all that I ever did." So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them; and he stayed there two days. And many more believed because of his word. They said to the woman, "It is no longer because of your words that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world."
John 4:5-42

We love our Church, with all her limitations, and her riches too, she is our Mother.
For this reason we respect her, and while we do so,
we dream that she will never lose her beauty.
May she be the Church where it is good to live, where you can breathe,
and say what you think-a Church of Freedom.
A Church which listens before speaking and welcomes instead of judging,
forgives without wishing to condemn, and announces rather than denounces.
A Church of mercy and of where the simplest of our brothers and sisters will understand
what the others are saying. Our Church will be where the wisest of leaders will know that
he doesn't know all, and where the people of God will be revealed in its entirety
-a Church of wisdom.
May our Church be where the Holy Spirit will be able to feel at home
because everything has not been foreseen, settled and decided in advance.
An open Church, a Church where the audacity to do something new
will be stronger than the habit of doing things as they have always been done.
A Church where everyone can pray in their own language
and express themselves according to their culture, and live with their own history.
A Church of which people will not say how well they are organized,
but say how they love one another.
A Church of the city, a Church of suburbs, and of the streets.
Lift up your heads and look - the Lord is with us and with you.

-Adapted from a 1966 Pastoral letter of Bishop Guy Droubaix-SntDenis, France
