Third Sunday of Lent

It’s an appropriate time to restore in our own personal lives the motif of water. In Pennsylvania we have an abundance, even cleaning the local waters from industrial contamination.  However people who have well water can find it undrinkable because of fracking. In Flint Michigan it’s been years for people to drink from the tap. We witness the Hoover Dam drying up, likewise the west coast feeling the effects of lack of rain.  People in third world countries are walking miles to find consumable water. Jesus‘ word and example hits home by our need to drink in who he is and how he changes our life.    ~ Fr. Matt
