Wednesday within the Octave of Easter

In today’s gospel, Jesus appears to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. “We all have Emmaus-like experiences of fear, confusion, dread and worry,” says Father Jerry in today’s homily above, “But along the way Christ makes Himself known in our midst: In the loving support of family and friends… of our community and our parish. Christ travels with us on our own road to Emmaus.” May our Easter celebration open our hearts and spirits to recognize Christ among us in every moment of our lives.
