When a Sa­mar­i­tan wo­man came to draw wa­ter, Je­sus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” The Sa­mar­i­tan wo­man said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Sa­mar­i­tan wo­man. How can you ask me for a drink?” (John 4, 7-9)

Jews and Sa­mar­i­tans were en­e­mies. But Je­sus breaks down bar­ri­ers by speak­ing with one. Break­ing down bar­ri­ers of race must be part of the Church’s role to­day. (JF)
