    Sermon 539 : The Road to Emmaus : 3rd Sunday of Easter

    5/8/2011
    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    Like the two disciples walking towards Emmaus, a symbol of worldly power and security, and away from Jerusalem, the center of sacrifice, we need to be stopped in our tracks. Christ appears to them, but they do not recognize him. They do not recognize him because they are walking the wrong way. The recognition of the pattern of Christ’s life does come until the Eucharistic act which presents the pattern of sacrificial love. Then they immediately go back to Jerusalem, the place of suffering love.

I realised that Jesus breaking the bread was the MASS But I had completely missed the point of Jesus giving them the Liturgy of the Word, when He explained the scriptures that pointed to himself. What a lot to learn and thank the Lord for our teachers. GBY Father B! and Thank you!

While I'm captured by fr Barron's homilies, my actual joy is not in merely listening to him but in the fact that he appears have abandoned his intellect and will to God.That, for me, is the beauty of his homilies. God bless you Father!
