Today is the day (at least according to the Catholic Church) we read in the Gospel about the two disciples who are traveling on the road to Emmaus. This is where I came up with the idea for the name of this blog. (You can find more on the About This Blog page.)
Back when I first started this blog, my faith was strong and I had very few doubts about my beliefs. Since then my faith has been tested, shattered, and is currently in the process of being rebuilt. I have no doubt, though, that this means it will soon be stronger than it was in the past. It’s all thanks to all of you! 😀 We are all travelers on the road to Emmaus; each one of us is traveling for many reasons. We are traveling because we are afraid and fleeing for our lives because we are fearful of being Christian (for whatever reason). We are traveling because we wish to share the Good News and spread it to the far reaches of the earth. We are traveling because we are lost and hope to find someone or something to help us discover the direction to take next. We discover Jesus on this road no matter why we are traveling; He is present everywhere and in each one of us.
Enjoy today and take a break from your journey; just remember we are still traveling this road to Emmaus on this journey through life and we need each other. Jesus is present not only in the breaking of the bread, but in each of us!
Love and prayers, as always! ❤
