"Episcopal Approval"

Lauda Deum!

This morning, Missionaries Lacy Howard and Patrick Yungwirth met with His Excellency Martin D. Holley. He gave his approval of our organization and the need for the spread of the Theology of the Body in today's culture. (He has even been speaking with one of his priest friends about it for the past few weeks.)

Not only that, but he mentioned that he is pretty sure that the Cardinal supports us (officially) too. That is pretty amazing. May the Lord continue to bless these, his shepherds, and all Bishops throughout the country and the world. May we continue to support them in all our efforts.

(A letter from the Bishop should be coming in the mail soon. It will be put on the website.)

praise God, indeed!

Who we are?

Every summer we, the Missionaries of the Eucharist, are walking from Lewiston, Maine to Washington, DC to proclaim the beauty of the Catholic faith to everyone we meet, specifically through the Theology of the Body.

Conversion begins in our own hearts,which is why prayer is so important to our ministry. For this reason, everyday of our ten week walk begins with daily Mass. By receiving Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the grace to be the Love of Christ not only to those in our community but also to those we meet in the streets.

We walk throughout the day to be a witness of love. We are grounded in prayer-we pray with our lips, our hearts, and our bodies. In walking an average of twenty-five miles per day, we offer our fatigue as a gift of love to Christ and the people we meet. Our walking is both sacrifice and prayer.
