Christus and the disciples at Emmaus, Franz Weiß, 1971

But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.”
So he went in to stay with them.

And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, and gave it to them.

With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him,
but he vanished from their sight.                  
(Lk 24,29-31)
