“But they urged him, ‘Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them.” (LK 24: 29)
“They urged him, ‘stay with us.” And Our Lord did as they asked: “so He went in to stay with them.” Our Lord encourages us to ask and we will receive. He answers our prayers, our requests, and our needs. He came to them without any plans to do anything. He just “went in to stay with them.” When our spouses sometimes ask us to “stay with me,” it doesn’t mean, that they want us to do something. Sometimes “stay” means only “stay,” spent 20 minutes with me, just being with me. Our 20 minutes ritual is very often very simple—no action, just being.
“Lord Jesus, open the Scriptures to us; make our hearts burn while you speak to us.” (Gospel Acclamation)
