    |The last sentence of today's first reading has caught my attention: It was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians. Apparently, it was a derogatory name, like more recently the name Moonies was or even ...

    Hamm, M. Dennis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2020)
    |What is it about the number 12 that was so important to the apostles? The fact that eleven of the original Twelve remained faithful to Jesus seems a pretty good survival rate. Could they not carry on the mission with that ...

    Quinn, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2020)
    |The phrase, "a straight run from Troas to Samothrace, then on to the port of Neapolis and Philippi," sounds like a modern description of an Aegean cruise. St. Paul's trip was certainly not for pleasure. He and his companions ...
