Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students

I shadowed this family physician that morning and we visited one of his hospice patients that didn’t have much time left. That night, the choir sang for this special patient. A few of the patient’s family members were present and our small 12-member choir sang a few hymns for everyone in the room. That moment was absolutely incredible. The choir sang beautifully in four-part harmony, the family members were quietly crying, and the patient was responsive for the first time in quite awhile. She was trying to sing along – she could feel the Spirit in the room. I know that she probably couldn’t consciously comprehend that we were there but I hope that she was consoled slightly by our presence. I know that moment was incredibly memorable for me and I know the family appreciated it too.
I can’t even imagine being present when Jesus stood and read what was prophesized about him. But I know that being in a situation where things just seem to work is truly amazing, just like he is.
