THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
In times when our country is so passionately divided that people are prone to dismissing the views of others as ignorant or even evil, the disciple’s journey to Emmaus may be a message for us. When the “stranger” joins them, they are appalled that he does not know what has been going on, but they do not turn away from him. They explain their views of recent events and, perhaps more importantly, they listen to what the stranger has to say. Because of their openness, they see things in a new light. How open are you to listening to the views of others and considering their opinions? Can you step back from the rhetoric that makes objective discussion impossible? Are you willing to take a look at the facts, or do you just rely on your feelings?
Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

This week we are asked to support the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Right now, over 40% of dioceses in the United States are considered mission territories because they are unable to fund essential pastoral work needed in their communities. Your support funds religious education, seminary formation, lay ministry training, and other programs that build vibrant faith communities right here in the United States. Please be generous. More information can be found at www.usccb.org/home-missions.
