The readings for the 3rd Sunday of Lent help us think about our true desires The first reading (Exodus 17:3-7) tells of how God satisfied the thirst of the Chosen People in the desert. The psalm (Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9) is “If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts. “, which reminds us to let God open up our hearts and flow through them The second reading (Romans 5:1-2, 5-8) tells us again that God pours himself into our hearts. And in the gospel (John 4:5-42) is the story of the woman at the well, whom Jesus brings to new life through his mercy and compassion. It is worth noting Jesus chose to interact with a Samaritan (an outsider) and a woman. So this is also a good time to discuss how we treat outsiders. And it could also lead to a discussion of the role of women in the Catholic Church.
