Abortion's realities

Today I learned the real effects that abortion has on women. We watched a movie of interviews with post abortive women describing the realities of the situations they were in, and in essence the realities of what abortion truly is, and how it effects women not only in that moment but for the rest of their lives. Women spoke of the things that happened to them the day of the abortion and it was starteling to find out that their abortion still haunted them, and lived with them several years, and sometimes decades later. I hope that this summer all women will be able to realize the truth that these women had to so painfully discover for themselves so that no more women will have to experience the pain and heartache of an abortion.
On a much more positive note of experience we went to see Christopher West yesterday and to say he is absolutely wonderfully awesome would be a complete understatement his phenomenalness cannot be described it must be experienced by everyone listening to him and learning from him themselves. The truth about the church and the Bible is so prevalent and explained in the Bible I am just glad I can have such a better understanding of my faith, and my church and the Theology of the Body......JP II was the smartest man ever!!!!! and I'm not exaggerating at all he really is the smartest man ever!

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.
