    Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
    The reading from Isaiah describes a victory banquet, the Psalm portrays the Lord as a shepherd and the Gospel has Jesus performing a set of miracles including the feeding of the 4000. I see in these readings the openness ...

    When I read the gospel for today, I was impressed with the sheer audacity of the paralyzed man's dedicated and zealous friends.  The scene portrayed in the gospel must have been chaotic.  Luke 5:17-18 summarized how people ...
