The Road to Emmaus: Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“Two of the disciples of Jesus were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking together about all that had happened.  And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side, but their eyes were prevented from recognising him...   When they drew near to the village to which they were going, he made as if to go on, but they pressed him to stay with them saying, ‘It is nearly evening and the day is almost over.  So he went in to stay with them.  Now while he was with them at the table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them.  And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he vanished from their sight.  (Luke 24:13-16, 28-30).

There are times that we walk with our Lord through the difficulties of life but we could not recognise Him.  Our minds are blinded by too much focus on our suffering and not on his promise of salvation.  Life is full of problems and tribulations.  At present, the COVID 19 saga proved to be a great challenge.  Yet, despite of a great uncertainty in this world, we should remain firm in our faith that God will get it through all of this together in unity with our brothers and sisters.

At the breaking of the bread, we recognise our Lord!  He is alive and He is risen because death could not be victorious over Him.  In the same way, our hope lies in Him. As we recognise and remember His wondrous deeds, we say:  Ah, it is the Lord🙏🙏🙏
