    St. Peter Faber, S.J., one of the co-founders of the Society of Jesus, always prayed to the guardian angels of a locality, where he was going to exercise his priestly ministry. Most of us, I surmise, were taught in our ...

    |Many times when I read parables from the gospels I have a difficult time understanding what they mean. I usually read them a few times and let them "soak-in" to try and uncover their meaning. The gospel reading from today ...

    Mausbach, Ann (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    One of the most frustrating things about raising teenagers is their sometimes complete and utter obliviousness to things that are right in front of them. They don't see the shoes that you trip over at the front door, the ...

    Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    I see today's readings as encouraging personal grit. The passage from Habakkuk warns of hard times. The Psalm encourages one to keep the faith. Paul's letter considers suffering for the sake of the Word. The Gospel reminds ...

    Lierk, Kyle (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    There is something so intimate and evocative about hosting guests in one's home for dinner. Rarely do we go about our preparations with sadness, greet each other at the door with long faces or hold some disembodied distance ...

    Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    I can't say that I have ever been so angry with God that I would rather die than live.  But there have been times in my life when I thought I might be better off dead than alive, so I guess that is getting close to the ...

    Chiacchere, Colleen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    Today in the Gospel reading for Saturday of the 26th week in Ordinary Time, we hear of the disciples on their journey, with Jesus on his journey, moving from Galilee to Jerusalem. They have experienced success as they tell ...

    Today is the Feast Day of Saint Francis Assisi.  When I learn about the life and legacy of St. Francis, the word paradox comes to mind.  A paradox can be defined as one having seemingly contradictory qualities or phases. |Born ...

    Of course, I think to myself, as I read the familiar story in the gospel today. The Good Samaritan. I get it, and I tell myself that I am sure the Samaritan is the person I would be in that same situation. I wouldn't walk ...

    Mattingly, Molly (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    It occurs to me upon reading this Gospel passage out of context that, just maybe, Jesus became frustrated when people didn't understand what he tried so hard to tell them. Maybe he was particularly frustrated with the ...

    Carney, Jay (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)

    Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
    In today's Gospel, Jesus heals ten lepers, but only one returns to thank him. In the first reading when Naaman is cured of leprosy he is so grateful he wants to give a big gift. Leprosy was an incurable and isolating ...
