The story of the two disciples on the Road to Emmaus is one that many who lived their Cursillo remember. It’s a story that reminds us that our God always wants to travel with us on the road of life. He wants to be our companion for the journey. The word “companion “ translates to English as “with bread”. He wants to be always with us “with bread” which is the Eucharist. We will never be alone as long as we have the Eucharist in our midst.
When they reached their destination they ask him to “stay with us”. When we ask Jesus to stay with us it shows our deep desire or longing for him. When we make this plea, it shows how much we need Jesus. This hunger for him can only be satisfied in the Eucharist. In the breaking of the bread their “eyes were opened “ and they recognized him.
The more we receive him, the more we become aware of his abundant generosity and love. No matter what we received from him yesterday, we know that there is more he wants to give us today. Nourished by him, we then take this generosity and love into our environment !
St. Joseph, pray for us !
