The thread that ties our Gospel and OT Readings together is thirst and water; both are physical and spiritual. That is not so different from where we find ourselves today in dealing with a pandemic and sickness. Thirst and sickness are not so different. They are physical needs that have spiritual repercussions. Jesus takes us from the physical to the spiritual. Jesus takes us from what seek for in our concerns to what we really need; the restoration of her soul.
