LK 24: THE ROAD TO EMMAUS AND THE MASS
INTRODUCTORY STUDY DAY : 18 APRIL 2020
10AM – 4PM
And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
The New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.
Having just celebrated the Passion and Resurrection of the Lord during Holy Week and Easter, on the Saturday of the Octave of Easter, the Academy of the Annunciation invites you to contemplate the experience of the disciples on the Road to Emmaus.
In this Introductory Study Day, we will explore this Resurrection day story in the Gospel of St Luke. Wouldn’t we have loved to have been there as the “Lord intrepreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself” (Lk 24:27) beginning with Moses and all the prophets?
Looking carefully at this text from Luke 24, we will see how our experience at Holy Mass mirrors the experience of these disciples on Resurrection day.
This introductory study day will encourage students to read God’s Word more attentively and provide an opportunity to discover the hidden meaning of this text.
Come and spend this Easter Saturday with the disciples who were jorneying to Emmaus on that first Easter Day!
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
During this introductory study day, we follow in the footsteps of the early Christians, studying together, praying together, and being nourished together at the Eucharistic Banquet. There are also opportunities to enjoy social time and fellowship with staff members, fellow disciples, and the Oratory Fathers.
Places are limited. Please register as soon as possible to ensure you have a reserved place.
Cost for the Day (including lunch): £39.
