Easter 3 – Two of the disciples of the late Jesus of Nazareth were making their way from Jerusalem to the nearby village of Emmaus, and they were thoroughly dejected. Two days ago their Master had been brutally executed, and that morning his body had gone missing. They had had enough of it; all the promises and hopes and dreams had come to nothing. While they were plodding along they met up with a stranger who set about explaining it all in some detail. They didn't recognise that the stranger was Jesus until he broke bread at table, using a very familiar blessing; and he vanished from view. We at present are living with the threat of a virus that has shaken the foundations of our health, travel, standard of living, and future security. Whether we realise his presence or not, Christ is on our journey with us, and his followers are continuing to experience him as a living reality. The same wonderful things are happening today that happened back then, if we can open our eyes to see them. May our eyes be open to the often surprising places where the risen Christ often conceals himself.
Luke 24: 13-35
