On the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman

 

Sermon preached by Fr. Antony Hughes on June 2, 2013

For many years, through study and practice, I have become convinced that today's Gospel is the key to understanding what the spiritual life is all about. The basics are all here. The essential elements are all here. It is true that the healing is in the practice. Jesus reveals the secrets of the kingdom, not to a scholar, nor to a jew, nor to a man, but to a woman, a Samaritan and an adulteress.
