Risen One, open our minds and hearts. Let us see and welcome your presence.
1.Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. ( Luke 24:31)
All around me Easter is happening. God continues to reveal Love, to extend invitations
to growth, to offer me hope. What is God revealing to me?
2. Jesus said to her, “Mary!” ( John 20: 16)
In the moment of hearing her name called, Mary recognized Jesus.
With the sound of her name, she was bonded in love once again.
How do I know the love of God in my life?
3. “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road
while he was opening the scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:5)
What a wonderful moment of surprise and joy for the two on the road to Emmaus.
They must have felt amazing relief after their intense struggle. I, too have had my life events that were blessed with joy and happiness. Reflect on those moments. For what do I offer gratitude this day?
4. Jesus himself stood among them and said to them,
“Peace be with you” (Luke 24:36)
As Jesus came among them he recognized the fear and disbelief that filled
his followers hearts. He greeted them with “Peace.” How will I greet myself and my world with peace during the Easter season?
