Nouwen uses the story of the disciples on their way to Emmaus to offer us a richer understanding of the Eucharist. We discover that the journey of these two disciples is one we are all called to share. As we travel with them from mourning to discernment, from invitation to intimacy, and from community to going forth to witness, we realize that what we are celebrating and what we are being called to live are the same. An inspiring and uplifting meditation for the Year of the Eucharist declared by Pope John Paul II.
