God calls by name and waits, and waits…

THIS Sunday’s Gospel centres on a very personal encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at Jacobs well. Jesus sees into the heart of heart of her being: he understands her true longing and invites her to draw from the well of living water.

In Lent, we are all invited to meet Jesus in a personal way. Jesus understands all that we truly need. So, as we try to make time to pray during these weeks, we too can come to the living waters and drink from the wellspring of life that Jesus office to us too.

During Lent, the voice of God calls to each of us with these words, “Come back to me with all your heart, for I am all tenderness and compassion”.

Tempted as we might be to give up on others and even ourselves, or even ourselves, or when we feel that our Lenten promises are producing no fruit, God never gives up on us. God calls us by name and waits and waits.

Listen to the hymn below: Fill my cup, Lord.
