      Burke-Sullivan, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010-11-22)
      Meditating on the readings and the subject of today's liturgical festival brought up three disparate insights that may be connected - they certainly point to the need for further reflection in my own life.||The Feast of ...

      Butterfield, George (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008-11-24)
      My baby sister loves science-fiction: Star Trek, the Matrix, you name it. I must confess that this is not "my cup of tea." The Book of Revelation, a classic example of "apocalyptic" literature, is the first century version ...

      |Although we do celebrate today an important memorial, the gospel reading is so rich in meaning, that I will focus my reflection on it, rather than on the memorial itself. Besides it being a lesson in generosity, the poor ...

      Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007-11-26)
      Today's readings underscore for me the power of faith and faithfulness. The widow gives her all because she has faith. Daniel refuses the king's offerings because he is faithful to his beliefs.||The widow who makes the ...

      O'Connor, Roc, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012-11-26)
      Let me share some background I think is needed in order to even begin to talk about today's gospel. First, the following bit of Jesus' teaching, or something very much like it, occurs in Mark and Luke just before the story ...
