    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 2, 2016: 18th Week in Ordinary Time. 

      Grassmeyer, Kimberly (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2016-08-02)
      Today's Gospel lesson, in which Peter challenges Jesus to prove his presence by making it possible for Peter to "come to (you) on the water," is for me a reminder of my humanness.|First, the disciples in the boat who have ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 3, 2004: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Kalb, Howie, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2004-08-03)
      In this stormy scene from today's Gospel, it's worth reflecting upon the personalities involved in the episode. First, there is Jesus. With divine insight he's aware that his apostles are in real trouble in the storm on ...

      Burke-Sullivan, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2010-08-03)
      For many years I have experienced fears similar to those of the disciples during the "fourth watch of the night" - that time between 3:00 AM and dawn. In winter and in summer awakening in that darkest part of the night ...

      Alexander, Andy, S.J. (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2020-08-04)
      |In the first reading, there is the profound realization that, like the people receiving Jeremiah's message, our wound might be "incurable." We might find ourselves in a place where we are "stuck" or in a rut. Our habits, ...
    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 5, 2008: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      Borchers, Pat (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008-08-05)
      Today's Gospel recounts one of the most famous of miracles: Jesus walking on water. This miracle is also spoken of in the Gospels of John (6:16-21) and Mark (6:45-52). Those Gospels, however, omit any mention of Peter's ...

      Purcell, Tom (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012-08-07)
      "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" I would like to have known Peter. He seems much like many of us. Human, faulted, weak, but also sincere, dedicated, willing to keep trying. "Salt of the earth" kind of guy, one ...

      Naatz, Susan (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2018-08-07)
      It is hard to believe that one year has passed since my precious mother became ill with an intense upper respiratory infection which rapidly developed into pneumonia.  Recently I ran across many of the texts we (her eight ...

      O'Keefe, John (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2000-08-08)

    • Reflection for Tuesday, August 8, 2006: 18th week in Ordinary Time. 

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2006-08-08)
      Today's scripture readings are an interesting mix. In Jeremiah, God describes the punishment He has given out to the Israelites for their great guilt and numerous sins. Then God describes how He will restore and rebuild ...
