Easter Monday at Emmaus

  /  

April 25

On this Page:

Easter Monday denotes the resurrected Jesus appearing outside Jerusalem before two of his disciples, and breaking bread with them in Emmaus.

Highlights of the festivity

Many places vie for identification as the historic Emmaus: Emmaus near Latrun, Abu Ghosh and al-Qubeibeh (west and northwest of Jerusalem, respectively). Solemn masses are held in the various locations, presided over by the Latin Patriarch (Emmaus near Latrun) and by the Franciscan Custos (Emmaus al-Qubeibeh). The physically fit monks and pilgrims customarily walk approx. 30 km. from Jerusalem to Emmaus-Latrun, arriving in time for the afternoon Mass, celebrated among the ruins of the Crusader Church.
