    When I agreed to join this ministry, I knew that writing these reflections would challenge for me because I am accustomed to scientific writing in my daily work as a psychologist.  I also secretly hoped that I would not ...

    Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-01-29)
    At the very beginning of today's readings we are told to seek the Lord. And then, conveniently, we are told how to do that. Both readings, the psalm, and the Gospel all come together to give a definition of how to seek the ...

    Hanna, Fred (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-01-31)
    I have never been to the point of "shedding blood" to resist sin. I believe, and am faithful, that I would do so if the situation came to me. I have, however, had cause to "rid [myself] of every burden" while raising a ...

    Today's scriptures provide some valuable insight regarding the year ahead.   What resolutions have you formulated for 2017?  Are they the kind the world encourages or was God a part of your resolution development?   Did ...

    Both today's reading (Hebrews 9:15, 24-28) and Gospel lesson (Mark 3:22-30) remind us of the reality (that is, the real-ness) of Jesus Christ as the son of God. Just in case there were any doubt, we have two accounts to ...

    Kelly, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-01-27)
    Our reading from Hebrews 10:32-39 admonishes us to stay the path with our beliefs and be willing to suffer humiliations and worse from those who do not understand or accept. Our reward is in the conviction of doing God's ...

    Kalkowski, Julie (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-01-25)
    What are we called to do?  Wouldn't it be great if we all got signs as clear as Saul?  A sign so unambiguous that he changed his name to Paul?  Instead we get nudges from our God that pale in comparison in terms of ...

    I believe that everyone would agree that we situate ourselves in reality primarily by means of our senses: just imagine who we would be and what we could accomplish if we could see or hear or taste nothing, if we could ...

    Latta, Mark (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-01-16)
    The message of today's gospel can be a bit elusive. At first, one might think that Jesus is condemning fasting per se. In fact, after the crucifixion, fasting has a place in the Christian community as it can serve to remind ...
