Jesus brings the living water, which is God’s gift to us, his children, the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit whom we receive, helps us worship God according to the truth.
God does not need the words of our prayer, but looks for simplicity, beauty and nobility in our spirit. The Spirit of God cannot be communicated except to those who seek the truth and live according to truth in a world of deception.
Each one of us in some way is the Samaritan woman. Those who really seek the truth recognize it when it is presented to them. We must first believe in the messenger of God. Jesus is in our midst, but to be aware of his presence requires faith. He comes to reveal the mystery of God, the mystery of the love of God-Father, Son and Spirit.
God does not expect works on the part of human beings but calls them to faith. Be rid of all that hampers you, of all that prevents you from seeing and believe. Believe that it is he, and he alone who is able to save you.
Physical possession is not the usual way of the devil’s activity in humans. The Devil operates in the moral life of people. Not that the Devil is the cause of every sin and evil that people do. There is also the selfishness of our flesh and the lure of the false promise of the world but the Devil, as enemy of God’s kingdom, is never at rest. The Devil notices at once those who are capable of weakening or destroying his empire.
Jesus shows us how to visit the sick. The care and love of our Christian sisters and brothers attracts God’s favours upon them.
The Good News does not remain mere words but it effects a change. If God puts us on a road in life, this road will lead somehow. Hope is courage and endurance. Good and bad will be mixed till the end of the world. Good and evil will always be found together in persons and institutions. God respects people and He is patient.
Believers are not to separate themselves from those who do not believe, for they are the yeast of the world. We must choose between sewing and being served, sacrificing ourselves for others or taking advantage of them.
This is the time to be reconciled with family members and neighbours, to let go of resentments. Since we are sinners, our salvation is worked out through suffering and through the cross.
Our desires and our prayers are powerful because we have come to the center from which God directs the forces saving humankind, because we work for the eternity, our names are already written in heaven.
To evangelize does not mean to try to sell the Gospel but rather to prove its power to heal people from their demons. We must stop being envious of famous people, kings and prophets of the past.
To pray is to take the time to listen, to meditate in silence on the work of God, it is to slow our desires, so as to pay attention only to God, secretly present, and slip into his will.
God relies on the poor and the marginalized to maintain the aspiration toward peace and justice in the world, to awaken the conscience of those good people who are too comfortable.
