    Grassmeyer, Kimberly (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    It isn't totally correct to use the word "overwhelming" to describe the impact of Holy Week and the promise of Easter, but the wonder of it all has always been genuinely humbling for me. Each time I reflect on it, I have ...

    Maynard, Angela (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    As I reflect on the readings of the day, I cannot help but think about the vast array of emotions evoked through the Easter season.  Lent is a time of reflection, and repentance penance and prayer.  Lent concludes with the ...

    Hoover, Amy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    Today's Gospel story from John 21 is one of my favorite resurrection stories.  As I heard myself saying that earlier today, I stopped and began to wonder why.  I didn't have an immediate answer and so that is what I took ...

    Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    The lessons for today bring me to reflect on what it means to be alleluia people – to be Easter people.  We are people who have not seen, but as Easter people, we believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  For ...

    Kestermeier, Chas, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    After His resurrection Jesus only appeared to those who believed in Him fairly seriously, never to those who had no belief in Him whatsoever. Those He appeared to, as recorded in Scripture, run from Mary Magdalen in John's ...

    Scholer, Steve (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    My wife of 35-plus years has an interesting way of asking for help. She gets nervous if her car has less than a half a tank of gas. More times than I can remember, after dinner she will ask me, "Are you going out tonight?" ...

    …see the kingdom|The gospel of John was written about 60 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus.   Unlike the other three gospels, it was written as a testimony to Jesus's divinity.  Chapter 1: "He (Jesus) was in ...

    The Fear of Easter|I am familiar with the joy of Easter, the warmth of Easter, and the hope of Easter. But the word that struck me in today's gospel is "fearful." What is going on here? Why the fear?|Peter gives us some ...

    Gillick, Larry, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    In the second Chapter of Genesis, which is the second account of creation, we read about two different trees planted in the "garden".  One is the tree of "life" and the other,  the tree of the "knowledge of good and evil". ...
