      Kuhlman, Mary Haynes (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2004-08-04)

      Wirth, Eileen (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2002-08-07)
      I start every day pestering God to keep my family safe and begging help for friends who are suffering various traumas. It's sort of a broken record.||Fortunately today's readings assure us that God welcomes such persistent ...
