woman with surgical mask meets Jesus

Spring Training: Social Distancing | #1018

Fr. Joel Homilies

Lent, 3rd Sunday (A) The woman at the well is practicing “social distancing.” While she may have distanced herself from others, Jesus is not distant from her. He comes to meet her in her daily life. She has found no satisfaction in her daily habits or her relationships. She finds satisfaction in Jesus.

His Love is waiting for you in your everyday life. You may find yourself practicing a little “social distancing” this week. If you binge, you will find yourself dis-satisfied. If you pray, you will find yourself surprisingly satisfied. Even if we are distant from other people, Jesus is not distant from you. Turn to Jesus and be satisfied.

Going Deeper: Make time to pray and connect with Jesus this week, especially if you aren’t connecting with others right now.
