Commemoration of St.Cleopas the Apostle and His Companion

Commemoration of St.Cleopas the Apostle and His Companion On this day also is the commemoration of St. Cleopas the Apostle and his companion who were traveling to a village called Emmaus. So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near, and went with them. When they did not know Him, He said to them, O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory? Later, as He sat at the table with them, He took bread, blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them. Then, their eyes were opened, and they knew Him, and He vanished from their sight. (Luke 24:13-31)These two Apostles were among the 72 Apostles.May their prayers be upon us all, and Glory be to God forever. Amen
