emmausI hope that I die during the Easter Season. Then there may be a chance that the liturgy would include the Easter account of the two persons journeying to Emmaus, hearing a Stranger talk to their hearts “burning within” them, and then recognizing the Christ in the breaking of the bread. There’s hardly a story in Scripture that fascinates and excites me more. The plot is fashioned for suspense. The dialogue reveals character. The setting carries the story along. And the denouement?  Awesome!
