Around the table of the Word and the table of the Eucharist
The word of God for the Third Sunday of Easter presents to us the journey of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. This journey reveals to us how the Risen Lord never abandoned his friends who were buried in total disappointment after his crucifixion in Jerusalem. If we carefully make the journey of the disciples, we shall notice the basic structure of what happens whenever we gather together for the Eucharist. The Risen Lord encounters us in the two tables of the Word and Eucharist.
