Luke 24: 30-32
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.
Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
After His resurrection, Christ walked with two on the way to Emmaus. Later, he prayed and broke bread with them and their eyes were opened.
Like these two men, we are fed by Christ and we are deeply knowledgeable of His presence burning in our hearts even though we may not recognize Him in everything. The implications of resurrection emerged from the tomb and was fully released at the last supper. As we enter the Easter season, spring emerges, we pray for recovery from a pandemic and we feel the burning presence of our Lord in our hearts.
Let us give thanks in communion. Christ has risen, we are forgiven!
