Wednesday within the Octave of EasterThe Road to Emmaus
The characteristic of Jesus that we reflect on today is eagerness to serve. Even in death, Jesus is eager to serve us. He wants the disciples on the Road to Emmaus to recognize Him. He walks with them, on and on, to reveal how He is the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies.
And when they still do not understand, He stays with them to reveal Himself in the breaking of the Bread. Jesus never ceases to serve. He serves because He loves us. He serves because He wants us to come to Him and have a relationship with Him. He serves because He wants to spend eternity with us. There is no one who understands us better, maybe better than we do ourselves. There is no one who serves with a more pure motive, love. Love of you.
