Last week I shared a few thoughts from a retreat led by my pastor, Fr. Dan Leary. Today, some mini-reflections on a question Father raised–How do we respond to the loving gaze of Jesus? Father asked whether when Jesus approaches us at our well, as he did the Samaritan woman, do we hold our empty water jug over our face, avoiding his searching, life-giving gaze? Or do we allow Him in to fill us with the living water of Himself, his truth, his peace?
Let’s pray for each other that we say “yes” to Him more and more.
