The Holy Spirit Exhausts Me ...

As orientation comes to a close, I feel that I am ready to take a nap. Fortunately though, the Holy Spirit enjoys giving us work to do and most important work at that. Our task is huge. More grand than words can explain and more humbling than I have ever known.

I am overwhelmed, but at the same time everyday renewed by those around me as we participate in the sacraments together. The grace that flows through this group is amazing and I could not be more blessed to be part of the mission of a lifetime. As tired as we are, there is continually an underlying fire that drives each of us to continue our work for God.

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.
