Jesus Among Us

May 1, 2022

How fortunate we are that the Risen Jesus is a truth we know and believe.  Let’s reflect on those who knew Jesus in his earthly life and experienced the pain, fear, and confusion of what happened to him and what it would be like with him gone from their midst. Are we sometimes like the disciples on the road to Emmaus who didn’t recognize Jesus even as he walked beside them?  Do we find ourselves slow to believe that what the prophets declared had come to pass … that Jesus Christ had lived among us, suffered, died, and is now Risen?  Do our hearts burn within us as we ultimately recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread? What a blessing to be able to receive Jesus in the Eucharist, to recognize his presence, and to believe that he is active in our everyday lives.
