The fifth Sunday of Pascha is observed in our tradition as the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman. On this day we commemorate the encounter of Jesus with a Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. The biblical story of this event and the dialogue between Jesus and the woman is found in the Gospel according to St. John. During their exchange Jesus offered the Samaritan woman living water that would forever quench her thirst. This simple and sinful woman accepted the precious gift offered her and came to believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God who was to come. She left her jar at the well and ran to the city, to tell others about her encounter with Jesus. Because of her testimony, many people came to the well to see this possible Messiah. After listening to Jesus they came to believe in him. Like that Samaritan women, all of us Christians, must bring others to Christ. We are called to strive to live out our lives according to the teachings of the Gospel, so that not only by our words, but mainly by our example of life, others may come to know Christ and His Gospel. We are called to share with the world this fountain of living water, which is Christ, and help to quench the thirst of the world.
