Orientation Through Leslee's Eyes

The environment here is so amazing. Just to be around a group of incredibly Catholic people really enhances my faith life. It is one thing to pray alone, it is quite another to be supported in prayer by a whole group of other people. How wonderful it is to have that support, to know that there are other people out there praying for and with you, other people who truly care about the world and want to see God's will accomplished. I know that someday the God's kingdom will come to reign on the earth and it is for this that we pray, we pray for the world to be held close to the heart of God and wrapped in His love and I know that our prayers will be heard.

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.
