In this Random Nun Clip, Sylvania Franciscan Sr. Shannon Shrein reflects on the story of the Samaritan woman at the well and how faith can free us.

"That encounter at the well changes everything about her life and the lives of those Samaritan people," Shrein says. "And that's the possibility of a relationship that we can have with Jesus as well — that we can unburden ourselves, that we can share our story, that we can change our lives."
