We meet Jesus anonymously in the persons and events in our lives, recognizing him in word and sacrament. Luke fashions the account of the journey to Emmaus on the pattern of Christian Eucharist. The two disciples are still scandalized by Jesus’ death when their companion explains the scriptures to them. But only when he “breaks bread” (the term for the Eucharist) do they fully understand his word and recognize the Lord. As in other resurrection appearances, the Risen One has to reveal himself before faith becomes possible; neither the empty tomb nor our own efforts can initiate belief. Christ’s presence in word and sacrament engenders faith. Peter’s homily in Acts proclaims the basis of our faith, Christ’s resurrection. It applies to Jesus that Easter morning the psalm verses which we repeat in hope. Peter’s letter reminds us that we must take our faith seriously as long as we are exiled from our heavenly home. Christ reveals himself even now. May we recognize him in our midst, and listen.

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
