The Samaritan Woman
A modern day monologue version of the what the Woman at the well said to Jesus. This story can be found in John 4:5-42 in the Bible.
A Love Letter from God
Scriptures relating to God’s love related in a beautiful fashion. This is a beautiful reflection for all of us to see over and over. It is worth your time.

Psalm 139 — Mercy Me
Faith and the Mustard Seed (Luke 17 :5-10)
This is a reading and short reflection by Daniel Mayne on Luke 17i:5-10. Daniel Mayne is a frequent contributor to Catholic.net and to St. Paul Press.
Slideshow of Psalm 95 (the whole thing) with music by the Sons of Korah, an Australian folk band. Created for a worship installation on the theme of Rest at The Well Christian community, in Brussels, Belgium. It last about 4 minutes but is well done and worth your time if you like folk music and want to praise the Lord.
The Prodigal Son
This is a modern version of the Prodigal Son told by the son and the father. Although it skips the section on the elder son it is a great retelling in a way that many of us see in our families or with our friends and their children. It is a good reflection on the unconditional love of a forgiving father. It’s our task then to internalize it for ourselves.
A Path to Happiness: The Beatitudes
Watch something that will encourage and challenge your heart. Using the music of David Haas’ “Blest Are They” we are given a walk through what the beatitudes can mean to us today.
Psalm 23: The Lord is my Shepherd
This is a musical version of Psalm 23 in song with beautiful slides that tell the story. It provides a nice venue for reflecting on the psalm.
Psalm 23 explained by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
This is Psalm 23 again but it is explained by a Rabbi and it is done in a very delightful fashion. He talks about the context of David writing the Psalm. You might find it helpful to sit with the psalm in front of you but I think you will learn something that will help you internalize the psalm in a deeper way. It is three people simply sitting saying what could this psalm really mean to me.
Psalm 46:10 Be Still My Soul
The song was written and produced by Scripture Lullabies, is based on Psalm 46:10. “Be still, and know that I am God.” Track 1: Be Still And Know, Artist: Scripture Lullabies, Album: Hidden In My Heart
Experience the Psalms
In order to fully experience the psalms and make them our own, it is often helpful to:
- Read a Psalm
- Meditate on a Psalm
- Paraphrase a Psalm
- Write your own Psalm
To get you started you might review this clip of Psalm 150 and then think about it a good bit. Then read it from your own bible out loud and then slowly line by line think about it’s meaning and then let your heart write whatever it feels — often it will be your own version of the psalm.
The God of all goodness created me good!
In these Lenten days we often focus more on what we are giving up, but the call into the desert with our God could best be considered a time of aloneness when we reflect on the goodness of a God who created us as we are and told us we were good!
Perhaps you might want to take time with psalm 139. Allow yourself to lean deeply into the words. As you do, recognize the splendor of God’s creation known as you.
Here are some ways other good people have leaned into those words in their hearts. http://youtu.be/TddCILTWNr8 Here is another one equally as powerful, a little longer but the music and the pictures take you deeply into the meaning of the words. Sit back and let yourself hear and see.
