We hear today the moving story of the two Disciples who meet the Risen Jesus on the road to Emmaus. It tells us that ‘something prevented them from recognising Him’ as he walked along with them. They were upset and disappointed at the violent death of Jesus. Jesus interprets ‘all the Scriptures’ as referring to Himself. It was only when He blessed the bread, broke it and gave it to them, that they recognised Him as the Risen Jesus.

Our Mass today continues to have the same action, the Word and the Breaking of the Bread. Can I trace my own journey of faith in the Risen Lord?
