Luke 24:13-35

The two disciples cannot believe that this fellow traveler is unaware of all that took place in Jerusalem. Jesus responds to their questioning by proclaiming and interpreting the scriptures that identify him, in his passion and death, as the fulfillment of the prophets. They are struck by something and invite him to stay with him. They recognize him “in the breaking of the bread.” After he leaves them they recall how “their hearts were burning.”

The two experienced your risen presence, Lord. It made their hearts burn. That experience is there for me every day in Scripture and the Eucharist.
