The disciples are seeking Jesus; they know he appeared to others, they seek to meet him themselves. The Gospel reminds us we must never tire in seeking the Lord.
Jesus walks on the road next to us: even if we do not always see him, we can feel his presence: in the peace, we sense in our heart, in the knowledge that He loves us, that He cares for us.
Let us ask for the grace to celebrate his presence in the world today. Lord, grant us peace; grant health to the sick, comfort to those who are alone, strength to families. May God give us the grace to always remain faithful to Him. Amen.
