He Appeared to Simon

In today's Gospel the disciples return from Emmaus to Jerusalem to tell of their encounter with the risen Lord, they are told he has appeared to Simon, and he appears again.
Part of the Easterday Papal Liturgy is the opening of the icon of the Saviour before the Pope. The role of the Pope is the witness to the Risen Christ, pray for him that he might strengthen the brethren.

Another of Petar Zrinjski's videos.
