3rd Sunday of Easter - A
Christ Walking with Us
The Risen Lord comes and walks with the two disciples as a companion on the journey, while they have lost hope, “looking downcast,” and could not see clearly.
He has spoken to them through their companions, “some of the women in [their] group” and some of the others.
He now speaks to them directly, breaking open Scriptures to them, and setting their hearts on fire. Of this experience, they later recall, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?”
At their invitation, the Risen Christ then shares with them a meal, during which he repeats his action at the Last Supper. And “with that, their eyes were opened and they recognized him.”
Let us look into our own journey, spend some time to find the Risen Christ who continues to walk, to speak, and to share a meal with us.
