New blog post at The Well: Cindy Clefisch shares Part 3 in her series Protecting Life in Every Age and Stage.
“There have been many times I’ve been glad that our Catholic faith includes so many visual images. We see Christ in his suffering on the cross, Mary as she is assumed into Heaven, the saints and their sacrifice, even how God is like a shepherd and we are his flock of sheep. What is a life worth? How does one decide that? I literally looked at the crucifix. There Jesus was giving everything He had the power to give for our salvation. One life. HIS life. His sacrifice. And that’s when I had this realization. What kind of sacrifice is my son’s life worth? EVERYTHING!”
The woman at the well Gospel reading is recommended on the third Sunday of Lent each year when celebrating the Scrutinies of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Scrutinies are special rites celebrated on the middle three Sundays of Lent at liturgies where the Elect, those preparing for Baptism, are present. The Church calls us all to examine (scrutinize) the areas of our lives where we are tempted, or seriously sin – in what we do and what we fail to do. Inspired by the woman at the well, now is a prime time to reflect on the “noonday wells” in our lives. Can you imagine Jesus meeting you there? Emily Schmid does just that in the reflection and original song shared in this blogpost.

“Our suffering is not unknown but precious to the one who would unite it to His own, if we would only take it willingly from his hand. Then we could wear this suffering as a crown, and carry it for the Lord all that kingly way to Calvary.” Mary Conway shares a most thought-provoking post today at the blog. What is your thorn – that thing that just won’t give no matter how many things you try? And what is the Lord asking you to do with this thorn? Read on.
