In his Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius of Loyola counsels the retreatant, when the time comes for considering the Resurrection, to realize that the Risen Christ plays the role of consoler. The Gospel story of the two disciples on the way to Emmaus illustrates Jesus comforting two disciples mourning his passion and death. They had not been able to believe the stories told by others who had seen Jesus alive.
