Have you encountered the Risen Christ in your prayer? Have you walked with Jesus like the disciples on the Road to Emmaus? Have you felt your heart burning within you as Christ opened the Scriptures to you?
The heart of Jesus longs to encounter us, especially in the Scriptures.
Spending time in scripture allows the Holy Spirit to intentionally highlight a particular phrase each day from a reading, Psalm, or Gospel. We become attentive to the Word of God in a new way. It becomes fresh and exciting. God also places in our path those that can help us break open the word through their beautiful charism of preaching. This combination nourishes the heart, with both the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and kindles a fire of love within me.
During this season of Easter, let us be attentive as Jesus desires to open the Scriptures to us. Christ loves us and knows how to speak to our hearts in a way that we can understand.
Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?Luke 24:32
Lord, thank you for accompanying us on our journey, whether we recognize you or not. I invite you to stay with me so we can be together, today and always.
