The two disciples on the road to Emmaus didn’t recognize the Risen Lord, so Jesus used the Scriptures to explain in some detail his Resurrection to assist them in understanding in their hearts and to enlighten them that the Lord had indeed risen.
We can’t underestimate the power of the Scriptures to set our hearts on fire with Jesus’ message for us. Men discerning their vocation need to read and pray with the Scriptures daily, allowing the Scriptures to touch them and assist them to clearly understand what God is calling them to be, allowing the Scriptures to set their hearts on fire.
Kind regards and God bless
