Touching the Water
Well of Living Water: Jesus and the Samaritan Woman is the title of Messenger Publications’ latest book, written by Magdalen Lawler, a Notre Dame sister living in London. In this, her latest book, Magdalen uses an inspirational icon of the Samaritan ‘women at the well’ to help the reader reflect on the significance and meaning of the gospel encounter in their own lives.
Scottish Jesuit Tom McGuinness, who is a singer-songwriter who has written a song, Touching the Water, based on the story of the woman at the well that has also been launched along with the book. (Listen to the full song here.)
In this second part of the series, we hear from them both, with a particular focus on Tom and his song. First Pat Coyle spoke with Sr Magdalen about the imagery around the book and then spoke with Tom about his music and the inspiration for that.
Well of Living Water: Jesus and the Samaritan Woman, by Magdalen Lawler SND is published by Messenger Publications and costs €10.95.
