St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

30 Jones Hollow Road, Marlborough, CT 06447

What was the name of the other disciple on the road to Emmaus? Was he a friend or brother of Cleopas?  Was she his wife?  Or, did Luke simply forget the name? I dislike mysteries like that.
 
Suddenly it struck me. Maybe Luke did it on purpose. Maybe we are meant to see ourselves in the unnamed disciple. We recognize the Risen Christ in our community through our breaking open the Word in Scripture and in the breaking of the Bread in Eucharist.
 
Jesus becomes our companion (which comes from "cum panis" which means "with bread.")  Jesus meets us on our journey with bread and in bread.
 
And thus we fulfill the Risen One's beatitude: "Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."
