      Pedersen, Cathy Weiss (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002-10-11)
      Tension best describes what I feel as I read the scriptures of the day. It is not unlike the tension in our times regarding the war on terrorism extending to Iraq or the disgrace of abuse in the church or the economic hard ...

      "If by the finger of God I cast out devils, the kingdom of God has overtaken you."|The Jesus of the Gospels ends up often being a confrontative person, and he plays that role again in today's Gospel. People in the crowd ...

      Maynard, Angela (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2016-10-07)
      As I reflect on today's readings, I feel great irony.  Today's readings are kind of difficult.  They seem pretty dark to me.  The irony comes in when I meditate on the gifts of Our Lady of the Rosary.  The first reading ...
