From the Pastor

Thirsty?

03-19-2017Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As an Arizona desert dweller, you know the importance of drinking water… and lots of it. During those hot summer months, there are few things as refreshing as a nice cold beverage to quench our thirst. Not only do we enjoy a cool beverage on those hot days; we absolutely must hydrate our bodies or we will not last very long in the summer's heat.

The woman in today's Gospel is thirsty. But as we read the whole story, we discover something that she herself is not aware of just yet. We come to see that this woman is thirsting for something much more than water. She is thirsting for something much more valuable than water. And she also learns what happens when you try to satisfy your real thirsts with something non-authentic.
