TEXT FROM THE HOMILY
One question that I often pondered during my priestly formation in the seminary was “Am I worthy or good enough to be a priest to serve the people of God?” And my spiritual director asked me to be open to God, to find that strength, to become a servant of God and once I opened myself to God, I began to see that my life was being gradually transformed. And I came to be convinced and my self-confidence grew that with the help of God I can be a priest. I can serve the people of God. St. Paul's words to the Philippians “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” became a reality. I lived and I experienced those words of St. Paul. I believe that what is happening to the Samaritan woman was very similar to that of mine. She lacked confidence. She was living in shame and she believed that she was an outcast because that's how the world treated her but what happens and this Gospel story is one of my favorite Jesus encounter stories, she comes as an outcast and she goes back as a transformed woman. As a beloved daughter of God. So what happens during that encounter was a transforming, life changing, a moment of enlightenment to the Samaritan woman. She, for the first time, experiences that someone respects her, someone is kind to her. That was not her experience with the people of her hometown. And today many of our brothers and sisters in our country, in our home, in our society, in our communities, feeling like the Samaritan woman wanting to feel accepted, wanting to be loved, and healed and we tend to discriminate people based on color religious, caste, language, but none of us deserve that. None of us deserve harsh judgment, condemnation, or hatred. We deserve love, we deserve kindness. We deserve healing and Jesus pours out so generously in his encounter with the Samaritan woman. So let us, brothers and sisters, become an apostle of healing, sharing generously the love of God with one another.
