About Today Readings

Easter Wednesday.
Acts 3:1-10. Psalms 104(105):1-4, 6-9. Luke 24:13-35.

‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?’ – Luke 24:13-35.

Their eyes were opened and they recognised him.

Perhaps today we can recall our own Emmaus story of conversion or transformation, a moment when we saw more clearly, a time when things changed for us. Let us ponder these events today and seek, too, to assist others to recognise their experiences of personal growth. These moments can be signs—miracles—in our lives, times when we see what was already there—the Spirit moving us forward.

Can we too be promoters of this Spirit within for others as Peter was when he helped the beggar at the Temple gates to walk? Let us seek out ways we can empower others through our encouragement and through helping them recognise their own transformative moments. Lord, help us also to recognise our own ‘Emmaus moments’.
