Our own 'Road to Emmaus' can help us see Jesus when we cannot receive Him in Eucharist
by Renae Bauer
Three passages from Sunday’s Gospel of Luke resonate with me. Perhaps they will with you, too.
“… but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him.” ( 24: 16)
- How will I recognize Jesus in my life today?
- Will I recognize Jesus in the people I love and the people I have a hard time loving?
“Beginning with Moses and all the prophets, Jesus interpreted to them what referred to him in all the Scriptures.” (24: 27)
- God’s love for us is as old as life itself. What can I learn from the Old Testament as well as the New Testament?
- How can I be a “prophet” for Jesus today?
“He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him…” (24: 30-31 )
- Broken, blessed, shared. Jesus does this for us every day. How do I reciprocate?
- How can I help others recognize Jesus in their lives?
With God’s help, we can see Jesus in our lives, in Scripture and in Sacrament.
How about just being extra nice to those I'm sequestered with?
