The Sunday Word

Well, have you started preparing for hearing the Scriptures at Mass this weekend?

This Sunday's Gospel is the story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and their encounter with Christ in person, in Scripture and at table.

In the same way, we accompany each other, friends and strangers alike, every day, on the road from here to there.

In the same way, Christ approaches, joins and walks with us, wanting to engage us with his presence and word.

In the same way, the Lord wants to be with us at day's end...

And in the same way, we often don't recognize the Lord right by our side...

Do we see him? welcome him? meet him? speak with him?
