“When he had seated himself with them to eat, he took bread, pronounced the blessing, then broke the bread and began to distribute it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him; whereupon he vanished from their sight. They said to one another, ‘Were not our hearts burning inside us as he talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?’
Notice that Jesus reveals Himself in sharing something very simple which you have in your kitchen—bread.
Hear the disciples’ admission of what they felt in their hearts.
What does this say about Jesus’ desire to make Himself known to them and to you?
Heritage word—“. . . penetrate yourself in your actions with the thought of the presence of God. This exercise alone is sufficient to sanctify you in a short time.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
