Today is the 3rd Sunday of Lent. The Mass formulary in the Usus Antiquior is of great antiquity. Just thought I’d add that.
We hear about the Station (once bombed), the Collects (the Novus Ordo prayer is really even wordier than yesterday), and then have part something from an Angelus address of Benedict XVI about the Samaritan Woman.
The theme of thirst runs throughout John’s Gospel: from the meeting with the Samaritan woman to the great prophecy during the feast of Tabernacles (7: 37-38) and even to the cross, when Jesus, before he dies, in order to fulfill the Scriptures, says, “I thirst” (19: 28). Christ’s thirst is an entranceway to the mystery of God, who became thirsty to satisfy our thirst, just as he became poor to make us rich (cf. 2 Corinthians 8: 9).
