MARCH 19: THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT

Preparation for Baptism has governed the choice of today’s three readings. The controlling image is living water, a biblical symbol for the gift of God. In the Exodus text, God answers the people’s thirst for water. But the water is more than a physical necessity; this is made clear in the last verse, interpreting the action of the story. The people’s grumbling about the lack of water is construed as doubt about the gift of God’s powerful presence: “Is the Lord in our midst or not?” In Jesus’ exchange with the Samaritan woman, the gift of God is again imaged as water, living water that becomes in the one who drinks it “a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The image of living water appears again in John, when Jesus, on the last day of the feast of Tabernacles, invites all who thirst to come to him and drink. To this John adds the note: “He said this in reference to the Spirit that those who believe in him were to receive” (Jn 7:39). This is what Paul means when he declares that “the love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
