      Zuegner, Carol (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2016)
      Today's gospel reminds me of the words we say often in prayer: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. We rely on the mercy of God to forgive us as we often stumble in the world. We don't ...
    • Reflection for Thursday, August 12, 2004: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2004)
      On first read, today's scriptures were just not what I wanted to hear. I was ready for some loving kindness and gentle reassurance. Instead the scripture is full of anger, wrath and rejection. However, on second read, there ...

      Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008)
      Today's gospel is a sort of harsh look at what should be the least harsh subject, forgiveness. It brings up the difficulties in forgiveness -- that it can be hard to do. We are supposed to forgive others like God forgives ...

      Marnard, Angela (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2014)
