On this Third Sunday of Easter, Tony Crescio brings the episode of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus into conversation with the episode of Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden. As Tony explains, when we attend to the parallels of these episodes the modus operandi of the Son of God as the One Who relentlessly pursues the human family out of love appears.
