THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT (A) March 24, 2019

Exodus 17: 3-7; Psalm 95; Romans 5: 1-2,5-8; John 4: 5-42

by Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

[God instructed Moses]

"Strike the rock and the water will flow from it

for the people to drink."


In the desert Israel and we learn to trust God. That’s not something we learn all at once. Instead, as God provides for us each day, we are reminded again and again of our dependence on God and God’s gracious generosity towards us. "Give us this day our daily bread." It’s a prayer often said and learned through experience, one day at a time.

So we ask ourselves:

  • For what am I thirsting now?
  • Where will I find the waters to quench that thirst?
