“When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:30-32)
From despair to joy, since the beginning of the millennium, many believers have traveled their own “Road to Emmaus.” In today’s world, we are bombarded with news filled with strife spanning all continents; a continuing war in Syria, and an ever-growing fear of terrorism. Many have had their faith shaken, many live under a cloud of daily uncertainty. When faced with news of the latest bombardments, displaced brothers and sisters, sickly children, and financial hardships taking its toll on families, it is easy to be overcome by a feeling of helplessness. Let us take comfort that God Himself took on all ordeals and triumphed. Let us recognize the full glory of the Resurrection as a source of new light, hope, and victory.
