I have three favourite Bible stories, and they are all in Luke's Gospel - the birth of Jesus and the visit of the shepherds (Chapter 2), the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Chapter 15), and the Road to Emmaus (Chapter 24).
The story of the Emmaus Road is the model for all our Eucharists in which we meet the Risen Lord. We hear the Scriptures and have them opened to us in the homily and bidding prayers; we break bread; and we are dismissed - sent on our way, back to our daily lives, strengthened and inspired.
Like those two disiples, attending the Eucharist should change our lives! Have you told anyone recently that Jesus is risen?
