Breaking of the Bread

        Today's Gospel from Luke 24 is on the appearance of Jesus on the road to Emmaus. Two of his disciples did not recognize the resurrected Lord until they saw him break the bread at table. This Holy Sacrament, the Holy Eucharist, is the unique, distinctive feature of Catholicism. It invites you to union with the Lord and seals the deals, so to speak, when you cooperate. It makes possible the complete transformation of your inner soul by the Holy Spirit. No other faith has this sacrament via which God draws one all the way into him.
