As I write this reflection during the Easter octave, I’m tempted to whisk off an urgent, slightly scolding memo to Mother Nature: “Spring has sprung, you know!” Even if slightly delayed, warmer temps will soon bring green lawns and blooming flower beds, singing birds and baby bunnies. In Nebraska, creation itself proclaims the Risen Christ: from the dark, cold sleep of winter is born the light and life of spring. This season also sees transitions within the Prep family. The Class of 2018 will commence a new chapter of life, as will some faculty and staff through retirement or new professional opportunities.
When sub-freezing weather blankets Nebraska in early April, we may wish for a San Diego or Phoenix ZIP code. Yet are we not blessed to dwell where the rhythm of death and new life is inscribed in our very surroundings? In every calendar year, autumn’s decline and winter’s death give way to spring’s infancy and summer’s abundance. We experience many such endings and beginnings during our earthly pilgrimage.
The cycle of birth, growth, decline and death also marks the overarching trajectory of most human lives. We are born, we mature, we enter the prime of our lives and then hit the downhill slope that inevitably ends in our demise. The Good News of this Easter season, however, is that resurrection follows earthly death as surely as spring follows a Midwest winter. We yearn for much more than the mere resuscitation of a corpse. Lazarus (John 11:38-52), Tabitha (Acts 9:36-43) and the widow’s son at Nain (Luke 7:11-17) were undoubtedly grateful that life returned to their dead bodies, but it was just a temporary reprieve. Their joy exploded infinitely more when, after their second earthly death, Jesus raised them to the heavenly life for which they—and we—were created and redeemed.
Fr. Dick Hauser, a Jesuit beloved by many in Omaha, died two days after Easter. In a candid moment during one of his final homilies, he confessed that he had not meditated on eternal life as often as he might have wished, focused as he was on finding God in this present life. As we enjoy finding God’s goodness in all things this spring—tending our gardens, walking the golf course, sipping Shiraz on the deck with friends—let us pause occasionally to ponder how every good and beautiful gift in this life is only a prelude, an echo, a pale reflection of the life that awaits us and that will never diminish or die.

"I have enjoyed being a part of the Creighton Prep community as a member of the Alumni Volunteer Corps, connecting with students both in the classroom and through clubs and athletics. Helping my students academically and seeing them develop as people has brought me a lot of joy. I have also grown as a professional, become more confident and gained important experience for my career."

Students Win First and Third in JRS/USA Essay Competition
Congratulations to sophomore James Chapman and junior Sam Forrest on winning first and third place, respectively, in the Lessons from Anne Essay Competition: Courage, Compassion and Hope in Refuge for Jesuits Schools Network (JSN) students in grades 9-12. The Jesuit Refugee Service/USA (JRS/USA) announced their awards on Thursday, April 12.
The essay competition was sponsored by the JRS/USA in concert with America Media (publisher of the magazine America: the Jesuit Review of Faith and Culture), the JSN and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
In September of 2017, the Embassy bestowed the Anne Frank Award on the JRS/USA for their work in providing education access to refugees and others displaced from conflicts in a number of locations around the world. That award helped inspire the competition, which began taking submissions in January of this year that were limited to 1,500 words and answered the following question:
“What can Anne Frank’s life and legacy teach us about how to address the current refugee crisis – more than 65 million people displaced today globally, the highest levels since World War II?”
Essays were judged by representatives from the JRS/USA, America Media, the JSN and the Embassy, and they were unanimous in their decision to award first place to James, an award that comes with a $1,000 monetary prize and the publication of his essay in America magazine on Thursday, April 12. Sam’s third place award comes with a $250 monetary prize. Click HERE to see James' essay and HERE to see Sam's essay.
“We’re incredibly proud of James and Sam, and the excellence of their essay work,” said Creighton Prep President Fr. Tom Neitzke, SJ. “A key part of forming Men for Others at Prep is teaching our students to seek justice for the underserved, and the recognition here is a reflection not only on James and Sam but also on their English teachers Mrs. Barb Hake and Mrs. Mary Kassmeier as well as their families and friends who supported them in the endeavor.”
