THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
n today’s Gospel, the two disciples recognized Jesus after he broke the bread in front of them. Each time we come to Mass, we experience the breaking of the body of Christ, seen in the form of bread, during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
During Mass, we receive the body and blood of Jesus and we hear the scriptures, and like the two disciples, our hearts should burn within us with the joy of our faith in Christ.
In turn, when we leave from Mass, we have the responsibility and the privilege to share the Good News with others. Our hearts should burn with love for others who do not know Jesus the way we do.
May you and your family experience the joy of Easter and the sure hope of the Resurrection. God bless you.
Rev. Robert L. Pope, Jr.
This is the day

and be glad.
