Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students

After reading today’s gospel reading, I was immediately struck by the idea of a reciprocal relationship and what that term means in our world today. After 10 men were cured of their maladies, only one, the Samaritan (and thus the social and religious outcast of the time) returned to give thanks for all that he had been given by Jesus. This story immediately made me wonder at the importance of gratitude and thanksgiving. It can be easy to simply take what is given to us, whether given by our family, friends, or anyone else in our lives, and then simply move on without a second thought.
“Smile with those whom you love, pray with all your heart, and in all things, give thanks, for there is much you have been given and much that you have to live for.”
