GOD WITH US ONLINE – SUNDAY OF THE SAMARITAN WOMEN (from May 5, 2022): https://godwithusonline.org/reflections/the-sunday-of-the-samaritan-woman-ruthenian/

The day commemorates the encounter of Christ with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. In the Gospel Reading John 4: 5-42, we hear how the Samaritan woman wanted to learn about Christ and asked Him “give me this water, that I may not thirst”, therefore we also each day must ask Christ to give us His “living water” so that it may spiritually sustain us during these difficult times that we live in as Christians. The more we humble ourselves and ask Christ for this “living water” the more our lives will be filled with the grace of the Holy Spirit spreading love and joy, not only within our own households, but to all those who encounter us and know us. By sharing the “living water” with others, we become true disciples and witnesses of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ. Glory be to God for all things!
