Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students

A mentor once repeated the quote from Francis of Assisi to me: “preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words”. Today’s reading from Mark reminds me of this lesson. It is extremely easy, for me, to preach the Gospel using my words. Words are easy to formulate and roll off the tongue. Words can be spit out with no action prior or after them. Words are momentarily. Disregarding morals, I have no obligation to abide by my words. Therefore it is easy, for me, to say whatever I desire.
This reflection is short, but my prayer and hope is it captures my stuggles for all to relate and/or learn from. May God bless you and may you continue to "preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words." St. Francis of Assisi
