Scriptural Reading & Meditation
(Scripture Reading: Luke 24:13-35)

Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the thingsDo we recognise Jesus? Luke 24:13-16 – Keash Parish that had occurred. … And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, … but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. … He asked them, ‘What are you discussing as you walk along?’ … They stopped, looking downcast. … One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, ‘Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?’ … And he replied to them, ‘What sort of things?’ … They said to him, ‘The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, … how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. … But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. … Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning … and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive. … Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.’ … And he said to them, ‘Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! … Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into his glory?’ … Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the scriptures. … As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. … But they urged him, He is Alive! Confirmation on the Road to Emmaus — Salty Believer‘Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.’ … So he went in to stay with them. … And it happened that, while he was with them at 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. … Then they said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?’ … So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them … who were saying, ‘The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!’ … Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.

The Gospel of the Lord…

Short Meditation
In the Gospel of Luke, we encounter the disciples on the road to Emmaus, grieving over the death of Jesus. As they walk, Jesus Himself draws near and walks with them, but they do not recognize Him. He listens to their sorrow and then opens the Scriptures to them, explaining how all that had happened was foretold in the prophets. When they reach Emmaus, the disciples invite Jesus to stay with them. At the table, Jesus takes bread, blesses it, breaks it, and gives it to them. At that moment, their eyes are opened, and they recognize Him. This passage reminds us of the presence of the risen Christ in our midst, especially in the breaking of the bread. As we meditate on this passage, let us open our hearts to encounter Jesus in the Scriptures and the Eucharist, and may our eyes be opened to recognize Him in our midst.

Pause for a moment…

This passage today on Cleopas and partner going to Emmaus in disappointment of Christ crucification and Jesus joined them. After His teachings about Himself they recognized Him at the breaking of bread. This teaches us that we come together at Mass, listening to His Words in the Scriptures, our eyes should be open during the consecration of bread and wine that it is really His body and blood we just consumed and this should bring healing, joy and He lives in us, people see us as Christ carriers and propagate the Gospel.
