Transcript of audio:
In Luke’s gospel, we hear about two disciples traveling to Emmaus who do not recognize the risen Jesus walking alongside them. It is not until later, when they break bread with Jesus, that the disciples' eyes are opened and they recognize Him. This personal encounter with the Risen Jesus transformed the disciples into true believers in the Resurrection and they went back to spread the word to the others.
The same is true for us today. We can be transformed by personal encounters with our God through the scriptures, sacraments, and the witness of others in our community of believers. The more we participate in our faith – at Mass or worship services, in serving others in ministry, in helping those in need – the more profound our transformation will be.
Allow your eyes to be opened and your life to be transformed by your God.
