    • Reflection for Tuesday August 6, 2019: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Scholer, Steve (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2019)
      The Feast of the Transfiguration is a truly remarkable day in the Church. But rather than focus on this wondrous revelation of the previously hidden eternal glory of Jesus, I would like to reflect on the words God said to ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 2, 2005: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Millard, Michele (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2005)
      I come from Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes. Everywhere you turn, there is a lake. They are beautiful on a nice sunny day, but in the middle of a storm, they turn into turbulent waters. There is one lake in northern Minnesota ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 2, 2011: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Kalb, Howie, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2011)
      Most of us are probably unfamiliar with the episode in today's first reading from the Book of Numbers. However, it does contain a very practical lesson that the Lord wanted to teach Moses' followers and probably for us ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 3, 1999: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Whipple, Bob (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 1999)
      Humans are fearful, doubting creatures sometimes. We see something coming and we don't know what it is, so we are afraid; when first told that it's not a bad thing, we doubt. "Are you sure?" we say. "How can we tell?"||Christ ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 4, 2009: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Callone, Pat (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2009)
      One of the choices for today's Gospel reading is the story about Jesus going up the mountain to pray and then coming down from the mountain to see the boat with the disciples being "tossed by the waves." It is a story about ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 4, 2015: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Zimmer, Craig (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2015)
      I've always found it difficult to see the main message in today's Gospel reading from Matthew 15, about Jesus walking on the water and inviting Peter to do the same.  There is nothing in our human experience to suggest ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 5, 2003: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Cherney, Mike (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2003)
      I am not a man of great faith. Today's readings show I am not alone. As a scientist, it is my nature to question. This extends to questioning the religious customs around me. Like Aaron in today's reading from Numbers I ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 7, 2001: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Callone, Pat (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2001)
      This is one of my favorite readings from Matthew. This is the story of Peter's walking on the water ... until he has doubts ... and sinks ... and then Jesus saves him again ... .|Matthew 14:23 - "And after he dismissed the ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 7, 2007: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Gaston, Maria Teresa (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007)
      I'm drowning in piles of things to read and file and projects begun and unfinished. There are many things I had hoped to get to this summer at home and at work, especially these days with the boys away at camp. I planned ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 8, 2017: 18th Week in Ordinary Time. 

      Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017)
      Today's gospel has an important lesson for us. Jesus told the disciples to go ahead in the boat while he dispersed the rest of the people, and then to catch up with them he walked across the water! The disciples were ...
