Saint Cleopas is a significant figure in Christian tradition and is known as one of the two disciples who encountered Jesus on the Road to Emmaus following his resurrection. According to the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament, Cleopas and an unnamed companion were walking to the village of Emmaus on the day of Jesus’ resurrection when they were joined by a stranger who was actually the resurrected Jesus, although they did not recognize him at first. It was only when Jesus broke bread with them during a meal that their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. Saint Cleopas is venerated as a witness to the resurrected Christ and is celebrated as a symbol of how faith can be rekindled through encounters with the risen Lord. His story serves as a reminder of the transformative power of faith and the importance of recognizing Jesus in the Eucharist.
