Luke 24: 13-35
The Emmaus road is the story of the Christian life. The disciples were walking away from Jerusalem and the apostolic community in defeat and dejection. They had lost hope. We too, have moments of despair and desolation. The Risen Lord Jesus accompanies us along the road, even when we are moving in the wrong direction. Only the Lord can “break open” the Word in order to help us understand the stories of our lives, especially suffering, and read them in harmony with the pattern of the Scriptures. Only the Lord can rekindle our energy and our resolve to devote ourselves to what is most important in life.
Prayer: “Lord, remind me to look for your footsteps along side of me. “
