About Today Readings

3rd Sunday of Easter. W. THIRD EASTER Week III Psalter
Acts 2:14, 22-33. Psalms 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-11. 1 Peter 1:17-21. Luke 24:13-35. [St Pius V].

Lord, you will show us the path of life—Psalms 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-11.

He took the bread, blessed it and broke it, and gave it to them.

The two distressed friends are accompanied by a stranger. He listens to their experience. He offers solace to them in the way of Scripture, which they seem to know and love. He accepts their hospitality and at the table he blesses and breaks the bread, offering it to them. And in that moment they realise who has travelled with them.

Each Eucharist carries the same promise for us. May we take time to savour the readings that are offered to us and approach communion with an open and loving heart. Similarly, in our home, let us make our family meal gracious, simple and a time of peace for our family.
