Easter Wednesday

Jan Wildens 'Christ and His Disciples on the Road to Emmaus'

Were not our heart burning within us while He was talking to us on the road, while He was opening the scriptures to us? That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem (St Luke 24:32-33).

For a long time, I fed my soul with the knowledge of "pure flour" that I found in a book called Imitation. This was the only book I was comfortable with because I had not as yet found the hidden treasures in the Gospel.....When I was fourteen, given my interest in knowledge, the Lord found it necessary to combine that "pure flour" with plenty of "oil and honey" (St Therese 'The Story of a Soul')
