Now it came to pass, as He sat at
the table with them, that He took bread, Blessed it and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognised Him. And He vanished from their sight.

And they arose that very hour and
returned to Jerusalem, and found the Eleven and those who were with them gathered together, saying: “The Lord is Risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” And they related all the things that had happened along the road, and how He was known to them by the breaking of bread.

Verily, Christ Who is the Way and

us hear the Church of God crying out with a loud proclamation: Let the thirsty come and drink. The Bowl that I hold is a Bowl of Wisdom. I have mixed its drink with the Word of Truth, and it pours out not Water of Contention, but of Confession!” Imbibing this Confession, the actual Israel sees God Who says: “Behold! Behold! I Am! And I Am not altered! I Am God first and I Am thereafter, and aside from Me there is no other at all!” Hence will Partakers be filled, and they will praise THE GREAT MYSTERY OF PIETY!
