This round Emmaus Plaque captures the moment that the disciples recognized the Risen Christ in the breaking of the bread on the way to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35). Two millenia later, we are still recognizing, with eyes of faith, the Risen Christ in the “breaking of the bread.” The “breaking of the bread” as Eucharist is, in fact, a fourfold action of taking, blessing, breaking and sharing of the Body and Blood of the Risen Christ in the community of faith. Jesus promised, “I Am With You Always”. This plaque is an especially meaningful gift for RCIA, first communion and ordination.
A Gift for RCIA, Communion and Ordination
This plaque is 3.1 inches in diameter with a hook on the back and top of the piece which makes this piece easy to hang on the head of a nail in one’s home or office. This solid bronze piece is designed and realized in Germany by a master bronzesmith.
The “Breaking of the Bread” is the Eucharist
The celebration of the Eucharist – the “Breaking of the Bread” – creates communion in the Risen Christ and incorporates each of us as members into the Church, the Body of Christ. This cross is then an ideal gift for each member of Christ’s Body, who is now initiated into the Body of Christ through the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and first communion.
