From a Creighton Student's Perspective

Today’s Gospel reminded me of a recent event in my own life, college graduation. Four or so years ago seniors entered the unknown territory known as collegiate life as freshman. At that point, many of us were praying for friends and “normal” roommates. However, as we prepared to leave the world we continuously acknowledged the bond we had formed amongst our class. In many ways, you could say we fostered a united front to prepare for graduation and the world beyond. Although this example may seem trivial, I think, in a small way, this is what Jesus asks of us.
Jesus preached understanding, acceptance, and unification under God. As followers, we must live in solidarity with one another, accepting and supporting each other. We must treat all individuals in this manner, especially those who have been marginalized. Jesus prayed for our generation and all future generations to share in community. Through truly accepting the love of God and loving all people around us, we may become one.
