Orientation through Phil's eyes

As we discuss our themes more and more and how to explain them, I can almost feel the energy, the excitement, the joy , and the eagerness if our group increasing. The Theology of the Body, the gift of human life, and the gift of the Eucharist - three monumental realities - though they may seem separate are wonderfully, brilliantly entwined: What hope lies with life! How can we live life to the fullest but with an understanding of the Theology of the Body? And Who is the source of life but Jesus, giving us Himself for us to receive in the Eucharist?

We're embarking on this venture in hopes that our summer-long commitment will be a sign to all we meet of the importance and magnificence of these gifts.

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.
