Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students
March 19th, 2014
“It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants…”
In today’s second reading there is a reference to the promise that God made to Abraham and his descendants. When I first read this, I immediately thought of the Durufle Requiem which the Creighton University Chamber Choir is working on right now. In the Third Movement, entitled Domine Jesu Christe, Durufle includes the promise that God made to Abraham. In my personal opinion, this is one of the most beautiful sections in the whole piece.
I want to briefly mention the power of music. I believe music can help us get in touch with the eternal life that connects us all. When we listen to, or play music, our souls are able to touch another reality that is always there, but is hard for most of us to experience. Even when I question my faith, or I’m not sure who/what “God” is, I can always go back to music to experience that deep sense of being, of oneness, that truly connects us all.
