From a Creighton Student's Perspective

The message of today’s Gospel and readings highlights the need to remain steadfast in what we know to be true and right and good. "The disciples of John the Baptist fast often and offer prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees do the same; but yours eat and drink." Those that questioned Jesus were not questioning him to understand his ways or to learn from him. It seems that there is a very real anger and frustration in these words. However, are the people really upset that Jesus and his apostles ate and drank instead of fasting? Is food what this is really all about? (Maybe it was a delicious chocolate fudge cake??)
You are beautiful and loved.
