“Two disciples of Jesus that same day [the first day of the Sabbath] were making their way to a village names Emmaus seven miles distant from Jerusalem, discussing as they went all that had happened. In the course of their lively exchange, Jesus approached and began talking along with them. However, they were restrained from recognizing him.”
What might have caused the two disciples difficulty in recognizing Jesus?
How readily do you recognize Jesus in others whom you meet during your ordinary day?
Be more aware of that possibility today.
Heritage word—“Christ’s resurrection is already secretly woven into the fabric of history, for Jesus did not rise in vain. May we never remain on the sidelines of this march of living hope.”
(Pope Francis, quoted by Sr. Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
