If it's Tuesday then it must be time to begin thinking about the scriptures for the coming weekend's Sunday liturgy! Here are the scriptures and background materials to help you prepare. And if you have kids, then check here to help them get ready, too.
The gospel passage tells the story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and their encounter with the Risen Christ. Only one of the disciples is named - Cleopas (sometimes rendered Clopas). Because in other places Cleopas is paired with his wife, Mary, some believe the second disciple on the road was this woman. The icon above shows that image.
