We are often disappointed in our lives. The disciples on the road to Emmaus were also disappointed. They had hoped Jesus was the one to save Israel and to usher in a time of wonder. And then Jesus died and with it went their hope. But Jesus returned to them, opening the Scriptures to their eyes and breaking bread for them. We must never lose our Christian Hope which rests in the promise of Christ. We have to continue to cultivate the virtue of hope and to recognize that even with all Christ has given us, he is going to provide even more for us. We need only rest all our hope in Him.
