St. Cleopas was one of the two disciples who met the risen Lord on the road to Emmaus. As told in the gospel of Luke Jesus stopped to have supper with these two disciples. At the end of the meal, Jesus blessed bread and gave them His Sacred Body to eat. Saint Cleopas was later murdered by the Jews in the very house in which he had been host to Our Lord. He is also rumored to be the brother of Saint Joseph. His feast day is celebrated on September 25, and he’s the patron saint of travelers.
Lord, help us follow the example of Saint Cleopas and welcome Jesus in our hearts and homes. Help us remain strong in our faith even during difficult times and always look to the Lord for guidance. Amen.
