One Minute Reflection – 19 April – Wednesday of Easter Octave

Daily Meditation: Give us the joy of this feast.

Then the disciples from Emmaus
told what happened on the road
and how they knew he was the Lord
when he broke the bread.
— Luke 24:35

REFLECTION – “The fact that archaeologists have not identified the location of Emmaus with any certainty, holds for me a certain value :  it suggests that Emmaus is really everywhere, the road that leads there is the path of every Christian, indeed, every human being.    On our own journeys, the risen Jesus is a traveling companion who rekindles in our hearts the warmth of faith and hope and the breaking of the bread of eternal life.    This beautiful evangelical text already contains the structure of the Mass: in the first part listening to the Word through the Scriptures;  second in the Eucharistic liturgy and communion with Christ present in the sacrament of his Body and his Blood. Nourishing ourselves in this twofold meal, the Church builds itself up and is renewed every day in faith, hope and charity.”……………..Pope Benedict XVI 2008

PRAYER – Loving Father, do I feel this joy so deeply each year?   I know how solemn this season is and yet I am overcome by sheer delight.  I celebrate this joyful time of remembering how I am brought to new life by the sacrifice Your Son made for me.   Help me to delight in the gift He left us, help me to experience the great joy of the feast of the Holy Mass and the Holy Eucharist the food to nourish me on my own road to Emmaus. Amen

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
