The apostles are despondent while walking in the road to Emmaus. ‘ we were hoping that he would be the one'.
When they recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread, they are filled with hope.
At this time, we are not able to partake Jesus in the Eucharist, but we can still recognize Jesus as we walk this road after Easter.
We see Jesus in the grocery clerk, health care worker, neighbors dropping off groceries, cards for the homebound, daily callers, first responders, etc.
Jesus is on this road trip with us. See if you can recognize him.
After all we are each made in the image and likeness of God.
