Third Sunday of Lent, Year A (for those who will be baptizing catechumens)

The Gospel is the story of Jesus and the Samaritan Woman, John 4:4-42.


Opening Prayer

O God, living and true,

look upon your people,

whose dry and stony hearts are parched with thirst.


Unseal the living water of your Spirit;

let it become within us an ever-flowing spring,

leaping up to eternal life.

Thus may we worship you in spirit and in truth

through Christ, our deliverance and hope,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

holy and mighty God for ever and ever.
