third sunday of easter

Celebrant: Fr. Jim Reinhart


TODAY'S FOCUS: THE BURNING JOY OF JUBILATION

The disciples on the road to Emmaus came to realize that the elusive, burning feeling in their hearts was actually the awakening joy of coming to know that Jesus had been raised from the dead.


Let us pray:
Jesus, thank you for the moments when your joy breaks through into our lives. Thank you for love and friendship and the sharing of bread and the little touches of ways that you reveal to us the glory of heaven. Come, be with us now. Our hearts want to burn with your love. Amen.
