A Lenten Thirst

On this 3rd Sunday of Lent, we read about Moses angrily striking a rock in Horeb when the Israelites had thirst and of the woman of Samaria who asked Jesus for living water. So this week our Lenten reflections are about thirst.

Love shortens time, changes the hours. Love is invincible. Many waters cannot quench it nor the floods drown. The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.

– Victor Hugo

Many waters cannot quench love
Many waters cannot quench love

  1. A beautiful image fitting for the words and quote you shared. Much to ponder when thinking about thirst. Thank you.

  2. I don’t know why, but today the story of the woman at the well struck me head-on with all the power of the Spirit. The image of water which puts an end to all our questing and striving, an internal source; something which flows from within; it stopped me in my tracks. And to come here and find water flowing, well, it is like a deer finding running water.
    Thanks 🙂

    • Wonderful, Kate. Thank you for sharing. And did you know that yesterday was the International Day of Water. May people everywhere have access to clean water. Pat
