      Borchers, Pat (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010)
      Today's Gospel is a challenging and familiar one. Personally I'm not prepared to sell everything I own and give it away. This would present a large number of practical problems, such as feeding, clothing and educating my ...

      Zaborowski, Joe (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2020)
      |The Gospel stands out to me in today's readings. With COVID I have been spending a lot more time in Lectio Divina. For weeks the passages I've been meditating and contemplating have contained a similar message. This ...

      Scholer, Steve (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2014)
      |There are many well-reasoned reflections on today’s gospel reading about selling all you have “if you wish to be perfect” and seek eternal life so I chose not to write about that wonderful passage. But what I did want ...

    • Reflection for Monday, August 20, 2012: 20th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Zuegner, Carol (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012)
      God asks more from us than just not doing wrong. In today's Gospel, Jesus tells a young man that he must keep the commandments and he must love his neighbor as himself. When the young man is able to check those things off ...

      McMahon, Cindy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)
      This week's readings from Matthew give us a lot to ponder. Today the young man who approaches Jesus could appear, to a casual observer, to be sincere. But if you look below the surface, there may be more that is going on ...
