Fr. Frank Donio

On the road to Emmaus, Jesus provides the way to accompany. He meets the disciples where they are. As they walk along, he questions, listens, understands, and teaches. At their invitation for more, he reveals himself and, with hearts burning, the disciples go forth to preach the Good News of the Risen One. All of this took time and patient accompaniment. Accompaniment is an art, not a science. In this session, we will explore the way Jesus accompanied and how we can do the same with others, so that they may go forth as missionary disciples.
