THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER Year A 25th / 26th April, 2020

Focus on the Readings… Much of Luke’s Gospel is taken up by the account of Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem to the cross. In this gospel, the two disciples have turned their backs on that event and are journeying away from the salvation that was won by Jesus there. All they can see is the confusion and disappointment of their failed hopes and expectations. They thought that Jesus was the Messiah, but he died an ignoble death on the cross!
