In the gospel of this week end, Jesus had promised the Samaritan woman at the well that He will give her the Living water. That when she drinks of this water she will never be thirsty again. This passage goes beyond physical water, it brings the message of the satisfaction we will have in Jesus, when we are thirsty of peace, joy, comfort, mercy and charity. In this Lenten season we are called to go to Jesus who will quench our thirst of all our spiritual and physical needs. May the Lord Jesus, through his presence and grace, quench the thirst of us all. Amen RECENTLY DECEASED
