Third Sunday of Lent • Year A

Jesus has invited this Samaritan woman to partake of the water which will always quench her thirst, to quench her needs in life. The waters he speaks of symbolize the waters of Baptism, and the invitation from Christ to all of us to seek that which gives us life, our faith through Baptism.

Augustine For Today


“Let there be in mild-mannered and humble spirits a compassionate ease in forgiving. Let the one who has done an injury ask pardon; let the one who has suffered an injury grant pardon; so that we may not be possessed by Satan, whose triumph is the discord of Christians.”

Sermon 210, 12
