Jesus took risks to reach out in love to those in His society who were deemed to be unlovable. The Samaritan woman was considered the lowest yet she saw in Jesus and Christ revealed to her that indeed that He was the Messiah. We are called to reach out to those who society deems unlovable and unclean. It is there that we find Jesus, and we are enriched by the presence of the Lord in our time of fear, searching and risking. In our Lenten Journey, we have to take risks to love those who others disdain! It is our calling.
