Lenten Day: The Samaritan Woman and Jesus: A Way of Opening to One Another


On this Lenten Day of Prayer we will walk through the discourse between Jesus and the Samaritan Woman at the Well and listen to the heart-to-heart connection that emboldens both of them enabling them to see and understand one another in a way that frees them to disclose their real selves.  Cynthia Bourgeault (Wisdom Jesus, 2008, p.11) suggests to us that “this quality of awareness is not something that comes from outside but rather it grows up in the moment itself through the quality and energy of the heart connection…Jesus Christ standing before the Samaritan woman becomes the mirror in which she sees not only the face of God but her own true face.”  Our invitation is to enter into the dialogue with them and have it transform our hearts as well.
