    Chiacchere, Colleen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    We have a giant ash tree in our backyard that arborists believe is about the age of our house, likely just over 100 years old. Between our sixty-plus foot high ash tree and our neighbors' giant overhanging maple tree of ...

    Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    In the account from Acts, Paul and Barnabas experience a mission that was not exactly what one might have scripted. In today's Gospel Jesus is preparing his disciples for the future. In my reflection, I find myself reminded ...

    Shanahan, Tom, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |One of the major themes of St. John's gospel is Jesus' affirmation that He and the Father God are ONE.  That unity is especially appropriate for this section of the gospel where several chapters are devoted to what might ...
  • Reflection for Tuesday, May 1, 2018: 5th Week in Easter. 

    Kestermeir, Chas, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    I have often wondered about what Jesus might mean here when He says "You have heard me say 'I go away for a while and I come back to you'," and we might ask, in this Easter season, how the Lord is absent from our lives. ...

    Tucci, Candice (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Since Easter we have been following the development of the early Church and the naming of "Christians". The apostles are on the move. Peter and Paul are proclaiming Jesus, the "Way" and sending disciples throughout their ...
  • Reflection for Friday, May 4, 2018: 5th Week in Easter. 

    Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Imagine being in Judea 2,000 years ago and hearing through the grapevine that an itinerant teacher was drawing crowds, preaching a new order in which sharing love, not acquiring and exerting power, was the divine imperative.  ...
  • Reflection for Thursday, May 3, 2018: Saints Phillip and James, Apostles. 

    Hoover, Amy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    As I was reflecting with today's readings, I was reminded of the Ignatian value of "Finding God in all things."  It started with Psalm 19 "The heavens declare the glory of God".   Yes, the heavens, the earth, the animals, ...
  • Reflection for Sunday, May 6, 2018: 6th Week in Easter. 

    Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    There seems to be a tension in the readings for day that I have often sensed in the New Testament.  Tensions in the Bible sometimes cause us to pick the parts that make the most sense to us and ignore the rest.  But sometimes ...
  • Reflection for April 2, 2018: Monday in the Octave of Easter. 

    Hoover, Amy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |As I was reflecting on today's Gospel reading from Matthew I was struck by the contrast in the first part of the story to the second part of the story.  It seems to me we are being presented with two different paths and ...
  • Reflection for Monday, April 9, 2018: Annunciation of the Lord, Solemnity. 

    Morse, Edward (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |Today we celebrate the solemnity of the Annunciation of our Lord.  While it is a little less than nine months before our celebration of the Lord's birth, the time frame is reasonably close.  After all, babies come when ...

    Shirley, Nancy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |Easter was just a few days ago.  We journeyed through 40 days of Lent, a gruesome story of betrayal and suffering, and an amazing story of resurrection.  Now as Easter people we walk with the apostles as first Christians.  ...

    Mausbach, Ann (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |There is a story that I am not very proud of but feel I need to share in light of today's gospel. When one of my sons was in the sixth or seventh grade he was on a really good basketball team. My son was the fifth man ...
  • Reflection for April 3, 2018: Tuesday in the Octave of Easter. 

    Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The Easter season has arrived once again.  It is a very uplifting season.  But I am not so ready to forget about Lent.  It leaves an imprint on us, or at least it should.  It should all be connected.  There are three main ...
  • Reflection for April 8, 2018: Divine Mercy Sunday. 

    Zuegner, Carol (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |Today's Gospel story is a familiar one, the story itself and the familiar term of Doubting Thomas. When I think of Thomas, he carries that doubting tag. Hah, I think to myself, that wouldn't have been me. I don't have to ...

    Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone. Peter and John are healing in Jesus' name when they are arrested. But it's so obvious they have done nothing wrong.|They know it. The crowds know it. They ...

    Samson, Beth (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    |Can you recall a time when the world around you seemed dark with despair, confusion, desolation? A time when someone you love died and you could not make sense of the sorrow that found you? A time when you could not make ...

    Gillick, Larry, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    Peter, in our First Reading for this Eucharistic Liturgy, is employing a Jewish historical form; reviewing the events of the past and moving through the present into the future. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has ...
