    • Reflection for Saturday, August 13, 2016: 19th Week in Ordinary Time. 

      Tracy, Mary (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2016)
      I think the readings today offer us the opportunity for some interesting contrasts. The first reading is clear about what the Lord God expects and also does not accept. In looking at the positive, the behaviors we should ...

      Our Ways, Your Ways ||Most of the time spent looking for You |We run into ourselves.|Goodness we thought meant getting even. |Stories of ancestors haunt us. |Surely their crimes are remembered. |One day a curse will strike. ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 14, 2010: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010)
      Today's first reading takes me in the direction of considering when am I responsible and when does God react. This consideration of responsibility is reinforced by the events that took place nine years ago today. That ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 16, 2008: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Burke-Sullivan, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008)
      Today's liturgy poses an interesting juxtaposition of seeming opposites for us to ponder so that we might be led to a deeper insight into the mystery of God's Reign. The Church sets before us the life and deeds of Stephen ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 16, 2014: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Longo, Mary (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2014)
      Lately, there have been many references to proverbs and parables in the daily readings. Often, especially in the Gospels, Jesus explains the sayings. But this was not the case with the reading from Ezekiel. I have to ...

      Schlegel, John, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002)
      Jesus waits for us with open arms! The Lord waits to embrace us, to heal us, and to make us whole. It sounds so simple and so promising, yet it does not always happen. Things get in the way, people get in the way, and we ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 18, 2012: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012)
      Today's readings reinforce the feeling that my connection to God is through a personal relationship, rather than through some cosmic ledger.||As I find my way in the reading from Ezekiel, I can imagine myself as member of ...

      Lierk, Kyle (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
      Sitting at the dinner table under a dogwood tree in the cool shade of a balmy Oregon evening, I am basking in the warm light of love encircling this shady space. My dear friend, Matt, is engaging in a lively quiz game with ...

      Alexander, Andy, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000)
      "Let the children come to me. Do not hinder them. The kingdom of God belongs to such as these."||Hearing how Jesus welcomed children seems warm and wonderful to us today, but it lacks some of its real power until we realize ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 19, 2006: 19th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Schlegel, John, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2006)
      Sometimes we get in the way. We get in the way of others. We get in the way of God.||In today's Gospel we find these lines:|"Children were brought to Jesus that He might lay His hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked ...
