‘Did not our hearts burn within us ……….?’

‘Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?’

These wonderful words were spoken by one of the followers of Jesus when they met him on the Road to Emmaus which was the feature of yesterday’s post. The followers did not recognises Jesus until the breaking of the Bread which had come after the Scriptures. Indeed, these two followers had participated in the two main and important parts of the Mass : The Liturgy of the Word and The Liturgy of the Eucharist.

This great story of doubt turning to faith inspires each one of us and tells us that we can meet Jesus at Mass in a very really way – through the Scriptures and the Eucharist.

Yor tasks for today as family or on your own but better as a family is to read the words of Jesus from yesterday’s post and compare them to the words of the priest said during the Consecration of Mass.
Write both sets of words beside each other.
