LUKE 24:13-35
HE WALKED WITH THEM
Recognizing
means “giving a name” to the
great quantity of emotions, wishes
and feelings that dwell in all of us.
They play a fundamental role and
should not be hidden or
dampened.
“Realities are greater
than ideas.”
RECOGNIZING
Opening everything is important,
feelings must not be
masqueraded, or camouflaged.
The thoughts that emerge should
be [brought] in discernment.
- Pope Francis,
(Pre-synodal Meeting)

Ako’y Kaibigan Mo
Naghahanap ka ng kasama
Gayong 'di ka nag-iisa.
At kahit ika'y tumatawa,
May lungkot sa 'yong mga mata
Nalimutan mo bang
nandito ako?
Handang makinig sa iyo!
Mundo man ay gumuho,
tandaan mo:
Ako'y kaibigan mo!
Ano man ang iyong sasabihin,
handa kitang pakinggan.
Mabigat man
ang ‘yong damdamin
sasamahan kang ito ay dalhin.
Nalimutan mo bang
nandito ako?
Handang makinig sa iyo!
Mundo man ay gumuho,
tandaan mo:
Ako'y kaibigan mo!
Kung nasaktan ka man noon
Nandito ako ngayon
at ’di ko man kayang lutasin
dalahin mo'y akin
ding papasanin!
Nagtatanong ka't nagtataka
bakit ka nag-iisa
ngunit ako'y di mo nakita
karamay mo't kasangga!
Nalimutan mo bang
nandito ako?
Handang makinig sa iyo!
Mundo man ay gumuho,
tandaan mo:
Ako'y kaibigan mo!
REFLECTION GUIDE
“He walked with them. Their eyes were opened.
They left without delay.”

Anong pagkakataon ng aking pagiging isang


kabataan ang masasabi kong “Sinamahan
ako ng Simbahan.” nagpaunawa sa akin, at
humamon sa akin upang samahan din ang iba
upang ipahayag si Kristo?
(“Ano ang aking sariling karanasan
ng On the Road to Emmaus?”)
