WORDS FOR LIFE: March 27th 2016
- In the gospel today, we realize that the disciples fail to recognize Jesus due to their despair. Their eyes were blinded with sadness.
- Jesus chided the disciples on the road to Emmaus for the lack of their belief in the Scriptures ,enlightening their minds to the understanding of the Old Testament prophecies which were fulfilled in him.
- At the end they only recognise Jesus through the breaking of the bread immediately the veil is lifted from their eyes ,they feel complete joy and their sadness disappears.
- Please join with me in this prayer to our Lord in your hearts: “ Lord Jesus, open the eyes of my heart to recognize your presence with me and to understand your saving word. Nourish me with your bread of life, let your body and blood transform me”.
