Newsletter April 26th 2020 (Third Sunday of Easter)

The Emmaus story speaks to people of all ages. We can see ourselves in these two despondent travelers on their journey, the faith and hope they have lost, the future they have hoped for fallen apart. And yet they met an unknown friend walking the road with them, who gave them  fresh insight, and connected their challenging present situation with what they had known in the past. And, of course, Jesus reveals himself powerfully and creatively in the Eucharist, in the breaking of bread, full of the many meanings that breaking bread had for Jesus himself, both during his ministry and after the resurrection. Having dined with him, they were filled with new energy and enthusiasm, to share with others what they now knew about him. “That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem” where “they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.”
