Have you looked at a sunset that took your breath away? Or sat with a friend as you both told stories and shared laughter? Or sat alone in the quiet and just listened? These experiences can be moments of grace when we clearly see that we live and move in God’s presence. Sometimes we can’t find the words to describe such experiences.
The two disciples on the road to Emmaus shared an indescribable encounter with the risen Lord. Once they realized they were in the presence of Jesus, their sorrow and grief disappeared and they were filled with great joy! They had seen the Lord and couldn’t wait to share that news with those they left behind. They clearly saw the glory of the Lord.
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
