We Receive Holy Communion
Chapter 10 -pg 79
This Sunday’s Gospel (Luke 24:13–35) ties together the lessons of Chapter 10. It tells the classic story of the presence of the Risen Jesus in the lives of his followers.
Two discouraged disciples walk home to Emmaus after Jesus’ Death in Jerusalem. A stranger falls in step and helps them see that the Messiah was not to be a triumphant king, but a suffering servant. At supper, they recognize the stranger as Jesus in the breaking of the bread.
At Mass, we listen to the Scripture and we recognize the Risen Christ in the community and in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread.
