Our Supper at Emmaus Plaque shows two of Jesus’ disciples encountering the Risen Christ—though they have walked with him, they only recognize him in the breaking of the bread (Luke 24:13-35). This plaque honors that beautiful moment of recognition. This Supper at Emmaus plaque is an especially meaningful gift for RCIA candidates, children receiving their first communion and for those being ordained to the diaconate and priesthood.
A Solid Bronze Plaque and a Beautiful Christian Gift
This solid bronze plaque is 8 inches long and 6.25 inches wide with a notch on the back for wall-hanging. This Supper at Emmaus plaque was created in a foundry in Germany.
The “Breaking of the Bread” as Fourfold Action of the Eucharist
We are still recognizing the Risen Christ in the “breaking of the bread” today with eyes of faith. The “breaking of the bread” is in the celebration of every Eucharist, actually now a fourfold action: taking the bread (offertory), blessing (Eucharistic prayer), breaking (rite itself of the breaking the bread) and sharing (communion) of the consecrated bread (Christ’s Body) and the cup of consecrated wine (Christ’s Blood).
