These reflections are a result of more than 40 years of ministry as a Roman Catholic priest. Most of these years I spent in the Diocese of Charlotte which covers Western North Carolina. Now I am retired, and live in Medellín, Colombia where I continue to serve as a priest in the Archdiocese of Medellín.

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. (Lk 24:13-35)
Many religious communities have the custom of making an Emmaus Trip during the Octave of Easter, especially today. They read the gospel story of the two disciples on the way to Emmaus, then make a journey together, have a meal, and watch for strangers! It’s a wonderful reminder that we still know him in the Breaking of Bread.
