Today's readings [display_podcast]
Rushing water is the symbol in today's Scriptures of God's presence in the world. That water rushes out from the temple – the Church – and becomes a river that gives life to all the world. That same water is stirred up in the Church for the healing of those who have become dejected by whatever handicaps them from moving forward in faith. That water is the water of our baptism, and as we dip our hands into the font this day, we are made new once again and given life that we too might go forward and freshen the world with life and call others out of their listlessness to life in the Lord.
