VOCATION REFLECTION: No bucket? Deep well? The gifts of the living water of the Spirit are yours! Jesus is the living water. Drink from that deep well; hear the Good News of Salvation. (John 4:5-42)


Heavenly Father, 

as we enter another week of our Lenten journey, 

guide us to the path that leads to you. 

Fill our hearts with gratitude, patience, strength, and peace. 

As we renew our resolve each day to become better people, 

let us hear your voice in the deepest reaches of our hearts.

Help us to accept others, showing them your great love instead of casting judgment. 

Stay with us through the busy days this week and remind us that when we need comfort, solitude, wisdom, or guidance, 

we can always turn to you. 

Help us develop discipline and generosity through fasting and almsgiving, and come closer to you through prayer this Lent. 

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
