Jesus said: “My people, in older times getting water from the public well was part of everyone’s daily tasks. In today’s world most countries have running water or their own well for water. Water is still a necessity of life, and you are blessed with every rainstorm that brings up the water tables for your wells. Water becomes even more precious where it is arid, or there is a drought. Water also has a spiritual meaning as in the waters of Baptism. I have given you this sacrament to cleanse away original sin and actual sin if an older person than an infant is being baptized. You also were given the sacrament of Reconciliation to cleanse away your sins and restore sanctifying grace to your souls. I pray that more souls would see the need for frequent Confession in their lives. Repenting of your sins is even more necessary for your soul than water is for your body.”
