Jesus-and-the-Samaritan-Woman

According to tradition, the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well was named Photini, meaning “enlightened.” It is a fitting name for this saint who represents the Bride of Christ, the Church. For it was at a well that Abraham's servant met Rebekah who would become the bride of Isaac, and it was at a well that Jacob met his bride Rachel, and it was at a well that Moses met his bride Zipporah. And so it is at a well that Christ meets her who would represent his Bride, the fallen Samaritan woman.
