The disciples who met Jesus on the road to Emmaus recognized him in the breaking of bread, but they needed to be catechized first. With their hearts and eyes opened by Scripture and careful teaching, they could see the Risen Lord. Then they joyfully raced back to Jerusalem to share the good news. Those involved in initiation ministry walk that same Paschal journey with catechumens and candidates year after year. Participants will be challenged and invigorated to consider the many ways in which “catechesis both precedes the liturgy and springs from it” (National Directory for Catechesis, 33).
