The Samaritan Woman

Ruby and Rita

Hens are triangular creatures.

Today is the day the Church remembers the Samaritan Woman,  also known as the Woman at the Well.  The Orthodox Church knows her name was Photini,  or Svetlana in Russian.  When I hear this Gospel story I am struck by how true this story rings to modern ears.  Everytime the Lord says something uncomfortable to her she changes the subject,  just like I would have.   Happy name day to all the Svetlanas and Photinis and may God grant you many years!

The Lord and the Samaritan Woman

And HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the moms,  especially my own!
