My Lord says ... Luke 24:13-35


*SUNDAY GOSPEL

13 That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus’ disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, 14 and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. 15 And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, 16 but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. 17 He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?” 19 And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. 21 But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. 22 Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning 23 and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive. 24 Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.” 25 And he said to them, 

“Oh, how foolish you are! 
How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! 
26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer 
these things and enter into his glory?”


27 Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the Scriptures. 28 As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. 29 But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. 30 And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. 31 With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. 32 Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” 33 So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them 34 who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” 35 Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.



  

HOW ABOUT LOOKING UP ABOVE?
There is time that what we have said to our family members, friends, or relatives, was either just ignored or wasn’t really understood.  A parent would always say to her or his children, “I told you so, you don’t do this or don’t do that …”  What the parent wants their children to do is actually for their own good.  In spite of that, she or he didn’t still follow the instructions.  Something that has been explained for many times still ended up to conflict, mistakes, and arguments.  In addition,  one gets blame at the end. They say we have choices or free will to decide– yes, that’s true.  But things don’t go our way always and later we suffer the consequences of a wrong decision.  Learning is a continuous process and hopefully we need to learn from our mistakes.  While in this situation, we need moral support from our family members, friends, relatives or other community.  Sad to say,  there are times when our own family members disown us or refuse to help us.  In one way or another, one is not  exempted from this. Times when everything is running smoothly in our life, we look straight.  Times when it’s not, we look down.  How about looking up above?

 " I will sing of your salvation. In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your justice rescue me and deliver me; incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to give me safety, for you are rock and my fortress. O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked. For you are my hope, O Lord, my trust, O God from my youth. On you I depend my birth; from my mother's womb, you are my strength. My mouth shall declare your justice, day by day your salvation. O God, you have taught me from my youth, and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds."

Psalm 71:1-2, 3-4a
