      In the Wilderness Together "The Lord will not abandon his people."  (Psalm 94:14) Time and again the Jewish people drifted away from Yahweh.  Isaiah cried out: come back, come back.  Weak and fearful kings ignored the ...

      Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008-07-16)
      The excerpt from Isaiah makes more sense (at least to me) when I read the whole chapter. As we can tell, it is the time of the Assyrian invasion of the southern kingdom of Judah; the "he" the Lord refers to is the Assyrian ...

      Rodriguez, Luis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002-07-17)
      Today's first reading tells us that God can make use of people and events to carry out the divine plan, even when their intentions are in themselves unrelated to God's plan. Clearly (and admittedly in the reading) when the ...

      Dilly, Barbara (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012-07-18)
      I always cringe when I see admonitions to the wise and the learned in the scriptures. In more than one place did Jesus take on the educated elite and put them in their place. As a professor, I am pretty certain he is talking ...

      Rodriguez, Luis, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018-07-18)

      Rawlings, Mary Agnes (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000-07-19)
      Today's daily reading made me stop and reflect once again on my understanding of God's nature and relationship to us human beings. At one point in my life my concept of God was one of a wrathful, fire and brimstone image. ...

      Whitney, Tamora (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2006-07-19)
      "Although you have hidden these things |from the wise and the learned |you have revealed them to the childlike."|As an educated, learned, and I certainly hope, wise person, I probably tend to over-think things. I know I ...
