March 4                        Third Sunday of Lent

John 4:5-42

In this Gospel Jesus broke through four major barriers that divide the human family: racial, social, moral and religious. In life there are differences that divide us and there are needs that unite us. Jesus chose to emphasize the latter. What about us? When we look at people, which do we see? The difference that tears us apart, or the needs that bind us together? Can we be humble enough to recognize that we are all alike – can we be intelligent enough to let nothing stand in the way of sharing our humanity together!
