    Amu, Vivian (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    At first glance, the readings of the Seventh Sunday of Easter look like endings, and are somewhat anticlimactic; so, I closed my eyes.  I wanted to feel different about the readings, so I asked someone else to read them ...

    Carney, Jay (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    I am familiar with Jesus' repeated injunctions against wealth, and I typically associate these warnings with excessive wealth – the kind that the rich man refused to share with Lazarus, or the corrupt earnings the tax ...

  • Reflection for Tuesday June 11, 2019: 10th Week in Ordinary Time. 

    Lenz, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    One of the things I find amazing about reflecting on the daily readings is how I often get drawn into a word, a phrase, or a sentence. Sometimes it feels very random to get so drawn to a short phrase that on the surface ...

    Scholer, Steve (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)

    The readings for today had me thinking about how we know that the Lord is with us and how does God help us to get through our tribulations and stay steadfast in our faith?  In other words, how does faith sustain us on a ...

    Drzaic, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)

    Maynard, Angela (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
