Recognizing Jesus in the Breaking of the Bread

3rd Sunday of Easter (A)

The gospel reading this Sunday tells of the encounter of the disciples on the road to Emmaus with the Risen Christ, who first breaks open the scriptures to them and is finally recognized by them “in the breaking of the bread.” In this week’s reflection, Deacon Matt talks about what this means for us in how we recognize Jesus’ presence among us in the sacraments, especially in the Eucharist.
