Third Sunday of Lent – March 19, 2017

Gospel Reading: John 4:5-42

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Lent is a time of spiritual dryness, a desert within our journey, if you will. It is only through being without something that we have a greater appreciation for it. Regarding our lives as Catholic school educators, let us look for opportunities to be open to allowing the Lord to spiritually refresh us, so that he can draw us and our students to eternal life.

What are some ways that you can let the Lord reinvigorate your soul as you prepare yourself for the remainder of the academic year?
