The goal of this study of Luke is to give a taste of that Bible study Jesus gave on the road to Emmaus. As we study God’s holy Word, our hearts too will burn with the fire of God’s love (cf. Lk. 12:49), just as the disciples experienced God’s love on the dusty road to Emmaus. If we read the Gospel with the prayer and contemplation that Saint Thérèse did, we too shall find “fresh lights there, hidden and enthralling meanings.”
