Were not our hearts burning within us?

Father Patrick’s homily for Wednesday, April 03, 2013 within the Octave of Easter on the Gospel reading from Luke 24: 13-35.

“Were not our hearts burning within us?” 

Drugs, alcohol, sex, money. 
These things do not make our hearts burn within us.
Although they promise otherwise, they will leave our hearts empty and unsatisfied in the end.

The words of Jesus and the breaking of the Bread are the only things that truly make our hearts burn, that fulfill and satisfy.

Nothing else satisfies, nothing else makes our hearts burn within us with a fire of love that not even death can quench or overcome, for Jesus the Lord is Risen!

Peace to you,
Father Patrick Greenough, OFM Conv
Minister Provincial of St. Bonaventure Province – USA & Australia
Natl. Director of the MI for the USA & Canada
