Awakened to Joy

Each Resurrection appearance of Jesus involves a process of coming to know that it is truly Jesus. So also with these two disciples on the road to Emmaus; tradition believes one of them to be St. Luke. The stranger to them is no stranger to the meaning and movement of God’s word. They are broken in sadness, returning home very disappointed to return to “business as usual.” However, in the course of the day, they awaken to the truth of God’s bringing life through suffering.

Full recognition for them only comes at the breaking of the bread, the Sacrament of encounter that draws them into the presence of Christ by faith. Their hearts, ignited along the way, are now aflame; Jesus is with them. Imagine Jesus walking with you from morning to evening as your heart awakens to joy.

Luke 24:13–35
