Jesus Walks With Us

Jesus Walks With Us

Fr Michael Rasicci’s homily for the 3rd Sunday of Easter, 04/23/2023.

Today’s Gospel reading (Luke 24: 13-35) takes place on the road to Emmaus three days after Jesus’s crucifixion. Two disciples are walking toward Emmaus and a third person joins them. The disciples do not recognize Jesus and, along the road, he tells them the scripture background for all that had to happen to Jesus. They extend hospitality to the stranger, inviting him to stay with them overnight. At dinner, Jesus reveals Himself to them in the breaking of the bread, then disappears.

Jesus walks with us, too. Often when we least expect it. Jesus comes to us in Holy Communion as well as in prayer and in the form of people we meet.

(Readings: Acts 2: 14a, 36-41; Psalm 116: 1-4, 10-17; 1 Peter: 17-23; Luke 24: 13-35)
