    • Reflection for Monday, February 20, 2017: 7th Week in Ordinary Time. 

      Chiacchere, Colleen (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017-02-20)
      Our readings today speak about God's magnificence and Jesus' healing power. The first reading of wisdom is a good reminder, for me, of the depth and breadth of God's love and power. The wisdom of God knows no limit…as ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday February 26, 2019: 7th Week of Ordinary Time. 

      Amu, Vivian (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019-02-26)
      So, once again Jesus tries to tell his disciples about his death and resurrection, but they were afraid; they blocked what Jesus said and went on as usual.  At first, I wondered, 'why didn't they ask questions? Why didn't ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, February 20, 2001: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      O'Keefe, John (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2001-02-20)
      Sirach's wisdom is harsh and blunt: "when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for trials." My initial reaction to this text is to blurt out, like one my children, "that's not fair." Why should service to God bring ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, February 20, 2007: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Millard, Michele (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007-02-20)
      Jesus introduces us to an upside-down world. It's one that he inhabits and invites us in. Our problem, however, is that it's a topsy-turvy universe, very different than the one we are used to. It's much like Alice in ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, February 24, 2009: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Shirley, Nancy (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2009-02-24)
      The readings today are clearly about trust and our actions, as we trust in the Lord in every aspect of our lives. The readings from the Old Testament, both Sirach and the responsorial psalm, are quite clear-cut. The gospel, ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, February 25, 2003: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2003-02-25)
      What a world we live in. I laughed as I watched people duct taping their windows on the news. When my wife came home from grocery shopping I hurried her over to the TV to see these people. She gave me a dirty look and said ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, May 17, 2005: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Bannantine, Tom, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2005-05-17)
      Most of us find it difficult and frustrating when we attempt to explain something to others and they fail to understand what we mean. The more we try to explain something and the clearer we try to be, the more frustrating ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, May 21, 2013: 7th week in Ordinary Time. 

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2013-05-21)
      Today's scripture readings seem to be about trust and prayer. In the book of Sirach, the writer says "Trust God and God will help you; trust in him, and he will direct your way". The psalmist proclaims, "Trust in the Lord ...
