Keep in mind, this story was not written down till decades later, by a someone who had faithfully lived the eucharistic life of the early church. He is teaching through this episode what the eucharistic liturgy is really about.

Ping!

My favorite reading during the Easter season. It was instrumental in my return to Jesus’ Church.

You pointed out the Liturgy of the Eucharist — but there are two other parts to the walk.

First Christ explained the Scriptures as we have in the Readings at Mass and the homily. Sound familiar? The Liturgy of the Word.

Then the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Then the dismissal — or in this case these two disciples traveling back to Jerusalem — making their trip a 24 hour trip, for seven miles was close to a day’s walk.

When they reached Jerusalem, they found the others gathered together and shared their story — evangelization — which we are all sent out to do at the end of Mass.

“Go, announce the Gospel of the Lord.”

“Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life.”

“Go forth, the Mass is ended.”

“Go in peace.”

During the Easter season, of course, an Alleluia is added to the dismissal.
