In today’s Gospel reading we hear again about the Resurrection of Jesus. Easter is too big a feast to celebrate on just one day. We celebrate it for fifty days and then we continue to celebrate it every Sunday when we gather in faith to meet our Risen Lord in the Eucharist. The Gospel story takes us back to Easter Sunday afternoon when Jesus appeared to two of his disciples. They were walking away from Jerusalem discouraged and depressed over Jesus’ death. Jesus walked with them, talked with them about the Scriptures, and when he broke the bread with them they recognized him. They came running back to the upper room to tell the others. Doesn’t this remind you of the Mass? Every time we celebrate Mass we encounter Jesus in the Scriptures and then we recognize him in the “breaking of the bread.” But the last part is important, too! At the end of each Mass we are told to go and proclaim the good news. Do we ever really do that? That’s a question for all of us to think about. God bless!
