I seem to keep thinking about Jesus walking with us...

The Gospel account of the two disciples who left Jerusalem on the first Easter Sunday is so full of details and so consoling that I am drawn back to it often in prayer at this time of the year. Jesus does come to us, especially when we seem to be sad and discouraged. The problem is that we do not recognize Him when he joins us. He asks us what we are talking about, what are our concerns. When we tell Him, then He can show us how this is part of our life and as we listen we will find our hearts burning within us. Jesus loves us and this is shown in thousands of ways in our daily life. Let us turn then to Him and tell Him our concerns and then listen to Him and, above all, invite Him to stay with us.
