The Elect (once catechumens) will be given to drink of living water, eternal life. We will be able to worship in spirit and truth…if we can ever turn from sin and be faithful to the Gospel. There is no discrimination when it comes to Jesus and the offer of salvation for all. The Samaritan was the untouchable in the time of Jesus. Perhaps, the danger of the Samaritan was as a mirror for the chosen people that showed the ‘warts and all’ of life.
Lent, time of grace. Time to take a good look in the mirror, accept yourself for who you are and what you’ve become; recognize the good, and turn the rest over to Christ so that you may worship in the Spirit and Truth of the living God.
