“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on
the way
and opened the Scriptures for us.”
Luke 24:13-35
Focus on the Gospel
April 30, Third Sunday of Easter
      Despite a flurry of archaeological activity in the Holy Land, especially around Jerusalem,
Scripture scholars have not definitively located Emmaus.  St. Luke says it was seven miles from
Jerusalem.  Several sites northwest of Jerusalem compete to be the “village of Emmaus.”  Yet it is
not the location that makes Emmaus significant; it is the event, the Risen Jesus teaching two of his
disciples all of the passages in the Old Testament that referred to him.  What a wonderful
experience, especially when they recognized him after “He took bread, said the blessing, broke it and
gave it to them.”  We have the New Testament and tradition, the completion of God’s Revelation of
himself to us.  Every time we participate in the Eucharist, Jesus, in the person of our priest, takes
bread, says a blessing, breaks it and gives it to us.  Oh, how our hearts should be burning within us,
no matter where we are.   If not, we may need to spend more time walking with Jesus by reading
Scripture, wherever we are.
