Reflection on Sunday’s Gospel
April 23, 2020 | Pastor's Corner
Jesus’ resurrection appearance to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus is one of the most well known and beloved resurrection stories.
“And it happened that, while [Jesus] was with them at the table, he took bread, said the blessing broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. LK 24:3 31
If we claim to be Christians, disciples of the risen Jesus, then those around us should be able to tell by our actions. Jesus makes himself known to us continually in the Holy Eucharist. When we come together to break bread at Mass, Jesus shows us his love by becoming truly present to us.
Every day, Jesus calls us to respond in some way. Our response shows whether we are who we claim; his disciples.
Let us pray that we may be able to gather for the Eucharist soon.
