“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way…”  John 24:33

Beautiful redemption can set our hearts on fire with a sacred presence that transcends time and space. The apostles felt it on the way to Emmaus yet they didn’t recognize what was right in front of them: the glory of resurrection. We do it too. There are moments when we hear with new ears, see with new eyes, and warmth spreads out from the solar plexus of our bodies as a little glimpse of bliss. Still, we remain oblivious. May we be vulnerable and open enough not to miss  the glory that surround us in each illuminated moment.
