The Road to Emmaus
WHO: Christ, Cleopas & and Apostle Luke (Identify people in icon) Cleopas, was the brother of Joseph, Mary’s husband, and Jesus’ uncle. Luke is the Evangelist.

WHAT: WHAT

Two disciples were traveling on the first day of the week, the day of the Resurrection, to a village called Emmaus, which was 7 miles from Jerusalem. While they were talking of the things that just took place, the judgment and crucifixion of Christ, Jesus Himself drew near to them and went with them. Cleopas and Luke did not recognize Jesus. When Jesus asked about the things the two were discussing, Cleopas and Luke seems shocked that someone was unaware of all that had happened. But Jesus was giving them a chance to explain, and then He taught them how the prophecies were fulfilled through His Passion and Resurrection. They invited Christ to stay the night as it got late, and when Jesus sat at the table with them, He took bread, blessed, broke it, and gave it to them. Cleopas and Luke recognized Jesus, and He vanished from their sight. Their eyes were opened! Cleopas and Luke rose up immediately and proclaimed to the other Apostles that the Lord is Risen!

COMMUNION: PRAYERS FOR COMMUNION: O Lord, I know that I am unworthy to receive thy Holy Body and Precious Blood; (6th- Teens) I know that I am guilty, and that I eat and drink condemnation to myself, not discerning the Body and Blood of Christ my God. But trusting in thy loving-kindness I come unto thee who hast said: He that eateth my Body and drinketh my Blood shall dwell in me and I in him. Therefore, O Lord, have compassion on me and make not an example of me, thy sinful servant. But do unto me according thy great mercy, and grant that these Holy Gifts may be for me unto the healing, purification, enlightenment, protection, salvation and sanctification of my soul and body, and to the expulsion of every evil imagination, sinful deed or work of the Devil. May they move me to reliance on thee and to love thee always, to amend and keep firm my life; and be ever in me to the increase of virtue, to the keeping of the Holy Spirit, and as a good defence before thy dread Judgement Seat, and for Life Eternal. Amen.

I believe, O Lord, and I confess that You are truly the Christ, the Son of the living God, who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. And I believe that this is truly Your own Body, and that this is truly Your own precious Blood. Wherefore I pray to You, have mercy upon me and forgive my sins.

(3rd -6th Grade)

O Lord, help us, save us, have mercy on us, and keep us O God by Your grace.

(Pre-K – 2nd Grade)
