Have you journeyed on vacation, business, or moving your home? Of course! Today’s gospel speaks of 2 disciples enroute to Emmaus, a nearby village. Actually, their journey and ours are far more more arduous and lengthy. It’s the journey of a lifetime: from unknown to understanding, blindness to vision, sadness to joy, from death to life.
Yes, these 2 acknowledge that Jesus has overcome death by living through death. Their paths are truth via God’s word and community via Eucharist. We tred the same path: a life-long search for wisdom and love whom we know as Christ. We stumble and lose our way, but we must never give up searching along the way, for Emmaus is not our destination but the journey itself.
