How they knew Him...

Going through my own archives I noticed that I have neglected as yet to explain the Scripture pericope in the sidebar from St Luke's Gospel. It is one of my personal favourites and tells the story of how the Risen Lord broke bread with the two Disciples. I find it profoundly moving. The last verse pretty much spells out the reason and impetus for this blog.

And it came to pass, whilst he was at table with them, he took bread and blessed and broke and gave to them. And their eyes were opened: and they knew him. And he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to the other: Was not our heart burning within us, whilst he spoke in the way and opened to us the scriptures? And rising up, the same hour, they went back to Jerusalem: and they found the eleven gathered together, and those that were with them, saying: The Lord is risen indeed and has appeared to Simon. And they told what things were done in the way: and how they knew him in the breaking of bread.
