There’s much to appreciate in the story of the disciples on the way to Emmaus, says Michael Sparough, SJ. For one:
It’s in looking back on the experience that they realize just how impactful it’s been. I think it’s that insight that encouraged St. Ignatius Loyola to teach his followers the importance of a daily Examen. It’s in looking back and sifting and sorting through the events and the feelings of our day that we enhance our understanding. We deepen our appreciation. We augment the gift of love.
Watch the full video reflection below as we continue the Easter season.
