From the Pastor

Dear Friends:

PRAYER: A DRINK OF LIVING WATER

One way to deepen our believing and come to know Jesus better is by spending more time with him as a friend. Lent is an opportune time to become more attentive to Jesus’ Presence — especially in prayer—and encounter him as One who loves us, teaches, and gives “living water” that carries us to “eternal life.” Another way to deepen our believing is to enumerate the blessings God has already given us and remember that these truly are gifts from God. Yet another way to deepen our faith and come to know Jesus better is to increase our selfunderstanding, (our membership in) the Body of Christ, and make concrete efforts to act like Christ’s Body. Something as simple as saying thank you or smiling at another who looks sad or depressed are simple acts, but they remind us that, like the Samaritan woman, we proclaim Jesus’ Presence by the truth of our own lives. We carry forth Jesus’ saving mission by being his Presence for others.

Living Liturgy, Third Sunday of Lent, p. 78.

The purpose of our celebrating Mass together each week is to come to drink of the living water of the Eucharist. So let us worship together grateful that we are given living water in the Eucharist.

My prayers for a holy Lent continue.

Peace,
Fr. Marty
