Today’s gospel relates how Jesus was made known to the disciples on the road to Emmaus “in the breaking of the bread.” Even as they are telling the story, Jesus has “a piece of baked fish” to eat with them. So many ways to discover Jesus Christ during the Easter Season! We go from empty tomb and folded burial cloths to Scripture lessons on the road to Emmaus and now a meal to prove Jesus was not a ghost. From these and other appearances, Jesus claims, “You are witnesses of these things.”
Jesus reveals himself to us, too, in multiple ways. Do you share these manifestations with others? Sharing your moments with Jesus makes you a witness. Your stories may be powerful means to open people’s minds to understand the Scriptures better and grow in their love for the Risen Lord.
