There are many waters to drink from but only one leads to the abundant life and the refreshing spring of water welling up within us. Only through Jesus do we find the living water that he offered to the Samaritan woman.
In today’s reading, Jesus appeared in the locked room where the disciples were hiding in fear. And he comes to us when we are fearful. He said, “Peace be with you!” Jesus knew what the disciples were feeling. Jesus spoke peace to them. “I’m with you,” he was saying.
