Archbishop Peter A Comensoli
Homily: Third Sunday of Easter (Year A)
“Did not our hearts burn within us…?” When was the last time you could say that your own heart burnt within you? I don’t mean by this identifying when was the last time you got excited about something, as if this is equivalent to the feeling of elation when your team won the footy pennant. (Sorry Carlton fans!) Rather, the fire that burnt in the hearts of those two disciples as they walked with Jesus along the road to Emmaus might better be compared to the fire of deep loving affection that a couple of many years might still have for each other.
