      Rodriguez, Luis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2004-07-26)
      Almost two years ago I wrote a reflection on Luke's parallel presentation of precisely these two parables and so, although they lend themselves to a repeated reflection, this time I will focus on the first reading. As that ...

      Jorgensen, Diane (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010-07-26)
      The readings we have for today are rich in images and symbolisms, layered with meaning, and challenge our notion of where and how and when we find the Kingdom of heaven. I'm sure Saints Anne and Joachim, Mary's parents and ...
    • Reflection for Monday, July 28, 2008: 17th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Alexander, Andy, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008-07-28)
      There are powerful images in the readings today. God does an earthy demonstration for Jeremiah. Using a very memorable image - God is as close to Israel as a loin cloth is close to our bodies - God has Jeremiah put his ...

      Heaney, Robert P. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2014-07-28)
      |Today's first reading must seem very strange. Dirty underwear, buried in the ground where it rots and is then dug up. Of what possible use could it be? No use at all, except as a graphic image of uselessness - of something ...

      Pedersen, Cathy Weiss (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002-07-29)
      Today we remember and honor Martha of Bethany. Scripture notes that Jesus was a friend of Martha and her sister, Mary and her brother, Lazarus.||So, it should be no surprise that in both of today's gospel accounts there ...
    • Reflection for Monday, July 30, 2012: 17th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Butterfield, George (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012-07-30)
      Robert Duvall plays the part of a Pentecostal holiness preacher in the movie, The Apostle. It is a movie worth watching for a number of reasons. I only mention it because of the unique way in which he refers to his children. ...

      Morse, Edward (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018-07-30)
      Today's readings present a strong message about the importance of obedience and humility in our spiritual journey.  Faith and faithfulness can grow from small beginnings.  But doubt and rebellion may also get started from ...
    • Reflection for Monday, July 31, 2000: St. Ignatius of Loyola. 

      Alexander, Andy, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000-07-31)
      I really admire Ignatius. I'm tempted to share the story of this link]. I'm tempted to try to figure out why each of the optional readings for this day might have been chosen, in light of Ignatius' story. But, this is a ...
    • Reflection for Monday, July 31, 2006: St. Ignatius of Loyola. 

      Wirth, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2006-07-31)
      I'm very moved by today's familiar parable because this is the feast of St. Ignatius and it speaks so eloquently to our Ignatian mission, the reason places like Creighton exist. |I've been on an Ignatian pilgrimage of sorts ...
