HE LIVES. IN OUR CONVERSION, WE WILL ALSO LIVE.
My heart beats. When I talk to you, I can love you without touching you, liking invades my being. To convert is to return to God, who is our true father. That same day, the first of the week, two of Jesus' disciples were going to a village called Emmaus, eleven kilometers from Jerusalem. 14 They talked about all the things that had happened. 15While they were talking and arguing, Jesus himself came and started walking with them. 16The disciples, however, were as if blind and did not recognize him. 17Then Jesus asked, "What are you talking about on the way?" They stopped, with a sad face, 18and one of them, called Cleophas, said to him: "Are you the only pilgrim in Jerusalem who does not know what has happened there in these last days?" 19He asked, "What is it?" The disciples replied: “What happened to Jesus, the Nazarene, who was a powerful prophet, in deeds and words, before God and before all the people. 20Our high priests and our chiefs handed him over to be put to death and crucified him. 21We expected him to deliver Israel, but despite all that, all these things have been going on for three days! It is true that some women in our group gave us a scare. They went to tomb 23 at dawn and did not find his body. Then they returned, saying that they had seen angels and that they claimed that Jesus is alive. 24Some of our people went to the tomb and found things as the women had said. However, no one saw him ”. 25Then Jesus said to them, “How sluggish you are and slow to believe everything that the prophets have spoken! 26Couldn't Christ have to suffer all this to enter his glory? ” 27And, beginning with Moses and passing through the prophets, he explained to the disciples all the passages of Scripture that spoke about him. 28When they got close to the village they were going to, Jesus pretended to go further. 29They, however, insisted on Jesus, saying, "Stay with us, for it is already late and the night is coming!" Jesus came in to be with them. 30When he sat down at the table with them, he took the bread, blessed it, broke it and distributed it to them. 31Then the disciples' eyes were opened, and they recognized Jesus. Jesus, however, disappeared in front of them. 32Then they said to each other, "Wasn't our heart burning when he spoke to us on the way and explained the Scriptures to us?" 33At that same time, they got up and returned to Jerusalem, where they found the eleven gathered with the others. 34And these confirmed: “Indeed, the Lord is risen and appeared to Simon!” 35Then the two told what had happened on the way and how they had recognized Jesus when he broke the bread. Our God and our brother.
