The two men who set out for

are men after our own hearts. It is
Sth -r ma"y of us to Put ourselves

Emm? S be,ween Jerusalem and
Emmaus we would, as they did

looking sad." F '
Nor would we be less confused by
what we had witnessed in Jeru
salem. Jesus, the one whom we had
?assumed was God's Messiah, came
to a . tragic end on a Roman cross on
a hill outside the city. And. if that

with the assertion that thev had

How ironic! The two disciples on

?difficult to believe the women's
testimony because, although thev

not likely that they were so wrapped
up in their disappointment and
confusion that they really didn't
^recognize him? And isn't it just as
likely that there are times when we
fail to recognize the Risen Lord in
our own presence because our
doubts and tears have dulled our
There was another sense in which

foolish men and slow of heart to

Wa.S because the crucifixion "domi
nated their minds and hearts that
hey could not see the resurrection.
They looked at what had happened
to Jesus as a crushing and humili
ating defeat for the kingdom of
God- But the Risen Christ is
challenging them to see his Passion
in another light. Instead of concen
trating on the human depravity
? that put Jesus on the cross, he is
leading them to focus on the divine
love that went to the cross with him
Perhaps the scales of doubt and
tear had begun to flake away from
their eyes. Eventually, as they sat
and broke bread with him at the
table, something in the way the
stranger blessed and broke the
bread suddenly revealed him for
^who he was.
" Later, as they marveled over
their experience on the way back to
Jerusalem, they looked back at
what had happened and remem
bered: Did not our hearts burn
within us while he opened to us the
scriptures?" We may not see clearly
the features of his face, but if in
some experience we sense our
hearts burning within us. we can
recognize the Risen Christ on our
^own Emmaus roads.
