Orientation through Megan's Eyes

This is day 2 of orientation for Missionaries of the Eucharist and it's real amazing! Today we went to the Dominican House of Study in D.C for morning prayer and mass and we got to have a tour which was really awesome. We are all also currently on day two of our consecration to Mary, and that is really exciting, side note, yesterday two sisters of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara came to help with the introduction to the consecration of the Blessed Mother, and they are practically experts because they take a fourth vow to Mary.
So orientation is really awesome so far, the people are really great and oo yea we are learning all this really great stuff too. Today we read between the lines of the DaVinci code and discovered the truth behind stem cell research and cloning. I feel these days have been very productive and we still have lots more fun ahead. WOOT WOOT!!!

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.
