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┬ádeath 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┬áthe way, for Emmaus is not our destination but the journey itself.
