Reflection for the Third Sunday of Easter – Year A

Join Fr Russell Pollitt, SJ, as he reflects on the readings for the Third Sunday of Easter. This week we hear the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. Jesus comes and walks with them, they don’t recognise him. Notice how Jesus, after his resurrection, seeks out the unbelieving disciples? He works with them where they are, with what they feel. Notice how, Fr Russell says, it is hospitality that opens up a new direction for them and their lives. In a world of increasing exclusion and fear, hospitality might be the way we come to “see the Lord” active in our lives.

You can find the texts in your bible. Read them and then join Fr Russell and listen to the reflection: Acts 2:14,22-23; Psalm 16; 1 Peter 1:17-21 & Luke 24:13-35
