The Gospel today is the story of the Road to Emmaus. This gospel is the 4th meditation from Cursillo done on Saturday morning .
Here we see two disciples heading home from Jerusalem. They are sad, dejected, and have all but given up hope. This Jesus they thought would redeem Israel has just been killed. All they had hoped and wished for had been eliminated by the authorities. They explain this to a stranger who happened along to walk with them. He explains to them that this was all in God’s plan. We too can have hope even in this time of isolation because, like them, Jesus will come and walk with us !
The stranger pretends he is going on farther, but they invite him in for dinner hoping for more stories. During dinner and the breaking of the bread their eyes are opened and they recognize him. I hope even if you watched mass on TV today as I did, you recognized him. He is here !! We are not alone !! Perhaps you even said as I did:
“Loooooook, Oh Loooooook !!!”
