Two of the readings today talk about "thirst". The first reading from the Old Testament is during Moses leading the people of Israel through the desert. The people are angry and complain to Moses about being thirsty. Moses speaks to God and is told to go and strike a rock in front of all the people of Israel.
I keep thinking about Christ and living water. To me these Old Testament verses are a foreshadowing/foretelling of Our Saviour and the Last Supper. Also of the wine and water that flowed from his side after one of the Roman soldiers pierced it.
It has been a quiet day, one of reflection and waiting. A different kind of waiting from Advent, but waiting none the less.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
