Road to Emmaus: Luke 24:13–35
This Sunday’s Gospel tells the classic story of the presence of the Risen Jesus in the lives of his followers. Two discouraged disciples walk home to Emmaus after Jesus’ Death in Jerusalem. A stranger falls in step and helps them see that the Messiah was not to be a triumphant king, but a suffering servant. At supper, they recognize the stranger as Jesus in the breaking of the bread. At Mass, we listen to the Scripture and recognize the Risen Christ in the community and in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread. Go to Gospel at Home for activities for this Sunday.
