      Enman, Fred M., S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 1999)
      Does Jesus keep good company? That was a serious question for Jesus' disciples in the first century both during his earthly ministry and after his Resurrection from the dead. Jesus' opponents criticized him for socializing ...

      Zuegner, Carol (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010)
      The readings today center on the Transfiguration of the Lord, when Jesus and three of the apostles go to a mountaintop to pray. But while they are there, Jesus was transformed and there were Moses and Elijah. I always try ...
    • Reflection for Monday, August 6, 2001: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2001)
      Today's scripture readings are filled with incredible imagery. The Transfiguration is one of my favorite stories. Not just because of the beautiful images of Christ, but because of Peter's reaction. Daniel describes God, ...
    • Reflection for Monday, August 6, 2007: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Fortina, Deb (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007)

      Rodriguez, Luis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012)
      No matter how ordinary and even dull our faith life may feel on a day to day basis, I think I am right in surmising that for all of us there have been some peak moments that stand out as summits in our faith experience. ...

      Burke-Sullivan, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018)

      Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2005)
      Today is the feast of the Transfiguration, when Jesus revealed His spiritual and Godly essence in physical form to the three apostles. His revelation, and God's voice from the clouds, cemented the faith (even though it was ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 6, 2011: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Wirth, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2011)
      If anyone had his life transformed by meeting Jesus, it was surely St. Peter, who left his fishing boat and nets to follow a prophet who offered to make him a fisher of men. Today I'm drawn to Peter's role in the Transfiguration ...
    • Reflection for Saturday, August 6, 2016: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Hamm, Dennis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2016)
      Reflecting on Luke's narrative of the transfiguration of Jesus from a special point-of-view-- how I imagine the experience of these Jewish men, Peter, James, and John—has given me a whole new way of understanding what is ...
    • Reflection for Sunday, August 6, 2000: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Gillick, Larry, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000)
      This Sunday of Ordinary Time is replaced by a most extraordinary event. We see Jesus taking Peter, James and John out of ordinary time and place. They go up a mountain for what we might call a "Confirmation ceremony." These ...

      Gillick, Larry, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2006)
      PRE-PRAYERING | We interrupt Ordinary Time with a most extraordinary celebration. Liturgically we skip the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time to celebrate the Eucharist which itself is the blessing of the ordinary in an extraordinary ...
    • Reflection for Sunday, August 6, 2017: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Shanahan, Tom, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2017)
      Today's feast of the transfiguration of Jesus is one of those gospel events that steps out of the ordinary as does, for example, the account of the baptism of Jesus by John.  Both involve the presence of the divine and the ...
    • Reflection for Thursday, August 6, 2009: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      Gaston, Maria Teresa (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2009)

    • Reflection for Thursday, August 6, 2015: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      McMahon, Cindy (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2015)
      Today's three readings tie together perfectly to all point to the truth of Jesus' self-revelation.|Maybe I shouldn't admit this, but I don't think I have ever heard the passages in the Book of Daniel in the first reading. ...

      Butterfield, George (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2020)
      |Today we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration. The Gospel reading tells the story of this event in the life of Jesus. In the second reading, St. Peter states that this story is not a "cleverly devised myth." He, ...

      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 6, 2002: Transfiguration of the Lord. 

      O'Keefe, John (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002)
      In the Eastern Church the Feast of the Transfiguration is one of the most important Christian holy days. For a variety of reasons it has never enjoyed quite the same status in the West. This is a pity, for the feast really ...

      Crawford, Sue (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2013)

      Shanahan, Tom, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.. Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008)
      The transfiguration of Jesus is certainly an intriguing event for him and the three disciples who were privileged to be there that day and to experience the events that transpired. Jesus took Peter, James, and John, to a ...
