Our Eyes Opened by Raymond A. Foss

Like the unnamed disciple
like them on the Emmaus road
leaving the sanctuary
the safe place of community
going home, to follow our faith
walking on the road
with them, from the temple
the holy city
unsure, doubting, in fear
faith tenuous, hanging as if by a thread
awareness, belief only
in an instant of recognition
seeing Christ before us
Like them on that journey
we walk, searching, wondering
so many questions,
answers written,
revealed in the prophecy,
the fulfillment of his life
in the promises kept
eyes opened to his presence
in simple acts of faith
