recognizing Jesus in the “breaking of the bread,” (cf.
Lk 24: 30-31), believers feel themselves urged on to
announce his death and resurrection, and to become joyful
and courageous witnesses of his Kingdom (cf. Lk 24:35).
Thanks to the Redemption, the communicative capacity
of believers is healed and renewed. The encounter with
Christ makes them new creatures, and permits them to
become part of that people which he, dying on the Cross,
has won through his blood, and introduces them into
the intimate life of the Trinity, which is continuous
and circular communication of perfect and infinite love
among the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Excerpted
Development by John Paul II.)
