    In Luke 7 11-17, the young man of Nain is en route to be buried, accompanied by his mother, when Jesus lays his hand on the coffin and says, "'Young man, I tell you to arise…' .upon which he sat up and began to speak." As ...

    Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    At times when the readings I have been assigned are not that clear to me, or I feel that I need a deeper understanding of context, etc., I search for commentaries from others that will help me.  Today's gospel reading was ...

    Shanahan, Tom, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Once again, we find Jesus being confronted by religious authorities; in this case he is approached by some Pharisees and scribes. They came from Jerusalem and thus carried weight in the matter they questioned Jesus and the ...

    Morse, Edward (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Today's readings begin with a frank discourse from the Apostle Paul.  While he begins with terms of endearment, "brothers and sisters," Paul does not spare them from the blunt expression of the truth.  You are acting like ...

    Schuler, Jeanne (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    As God Sees Us "The Lord raises up those who were bowed down.  The Lord loves the just; the Lord protects strangers."  Psalm 146: 8-9 In God's kingdom, the poor are seated first.  The afflicted are gently raised up, and ...

    Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Paul's letter considers how we know things that are spiritual. The structure of the Psalm grows out of roots in the Hebrew language. The Gospel makes the point of Jesus' authority. My personal reflection on these passages ...
  • Reflection for Saturday September 8, 2018: Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

    Brock, Mary (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    It seems that across the United States exploring one's genealogy has become very popular.  There are testing kits for purchase to analyze the science of the ancestry of an individual.  The results of these tests are helping ...

    Miller, Mariana (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    In the first reading Paul tells the community in Corinth:|God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise,|and God chose the weak of the world to shame the strong,|and God chose the lowly and despised of the world,|those ...

    McClure, Scott (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man. (LK 5:8)|These words show Simon's reaction to being chosen by Jesus to be His disciple. From these words, we see a Simon that appears to feel unworthy, self-conscious, and ...

    Scholer, Steve (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    "People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved."|Was Jesus really telling ...

    Tucci, Candice, Sr. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Years ago, when I professed my vows to live as a Sister of St. Francis, I added a tag line and said: "…and the power of the Cross will sustain me." Did I know or realize what I was saying? At the least, I trusted in the ...
  • Reflection for Thursday September 13, 2018: 23rd Week of Ordinary Time. 

    Kalkowski, Julie (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Hmmm, no parable today, but an extensive list of directives: "love your enemies…give to everyone who asks…pray for those who mistreat you…stop judging".   This is quite a "To Do" list for a Christian.   And as a mere mortal, ...
  • Reflection for Friday September 14, 2018: Exaltation of the Holy Cross. 

    Burke-Sullivan, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    As the Church approaches the midpoint of September, and plunges into the final weeks of Ordinary Time, it inserts a Feast that emerged in the Medieval Church as a kind of autumnal Easter.  When it began the Church was ...

    Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    There is much we can learn about the faith of Jesus' mother.  The focus on her faith amid her sorrows is where her life is most instructive for us.  Mary reminds us that our problems are often minor compared to hers, but ...
  • Reflection for Monday September 17, 2018: 24th Week of Ordinary Time. 

    Rodriguez, Luis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The gospel reading is not by itself a Eucharistic passage, but the centurion's words –Lord... I am not worthy that you enter under my roof– are echoed at every Eucharistic celebration. Indeed, the other two readings –Paul's ...

    Samson, Beth (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    In today's readings we see Paul writing to the Corinthians about injustice, judgment, and belonging to the Kingdom of God. In the responsorial psalm, we are reminded that God takes great delight in the created, in us. In ...
  • Reflection for Monday September 10, 2018: 23rd Week of Ordinary Time. 

    Zuegner, Carol (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The Pharisees seem to be always on the watch, tracking Jesus' every move, to catch him out on some rule violation, some crossing the line. In today's Gospel, the question is whether Jesus should heal a man with a withered ...
  • Reflection for Wednesday September 12, 2018: 23rd Week of Ordinary Time. 

    Hoover, Amy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The beginning of the Sermon on the Plain that we hear today is often talked about as extolling a preferential option for the poor, hungry, weeping and hated.  I hear that message and accept it.  But in my prayer and ...

    Alexander, Andy, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way.... Luke 10
