Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students
March 23rd, 2014
Permeating through today's readings is a substance essential to life: water. Growing up in the hot desert of Arizona, I can resonate with the people grumbling to Moses of their thirst. We all can relate to being parched for water, and we know the cool and refreshing feeling of water hitting our dried lips and quenching our thirst. Amidst our fasting and sacrificing during this season of Lent, we are reminded of the ways in which our souls thirst for God. Whether it is longing for a juicy steak on a Friday, or craving those sweets we gave up, we realize the desires of the flesh and the spirit are real. Each of these moments during Lent are opportunities that remind us of our need for God, which is far greater than our need for any of these earthly things we fast from. Let us use this season of Lent to allow God to quench the deepest thirsts of our heart and soul, as we continue our journey towards the Resurrection.
