Liturgy on the Road to Emmaus

Cognoverunt discipuli Dominum Jesum in fractione panis.

One of the real treasures that blogging has brought me is the ability to get multiple homilies every Sunday. Not that I don't enjoy the homilies of my home parish. Indeed, the preaching at St Mary's is uniformly excellent, as befits the Ordo Praedicatorum. (I'm currently trying to figure out how to suggest that they start posting their homilies on the internet, either on a blog or on the website itself. Any canny suggestions would be welcome.) But the more the merrier, I say.

With that in mind, may I direct you to Father Jim Tucker's homily on this week's Gospel. He sees in the two ways Jesus makes himself known to the disciples as a foreshadowing of the liturgy of the Mass. There's a bunch of other good stuff in there as well. Please, go, read.
