That evening we stayed to speak with some people who had stayed in the vendors' room a little longer and then headed to Blue Island to sleep for the night. A big thank you to Patrick for keeping me awake by singing and hitting me with a palm branch repeatedly.
As Saturday rolled around we make the trek back to Mundeleine to the University of St. Mary of the Lake and were able to get some school-work done while the participants listened to more talks. Praise God for wireless internet and multi-taking abilities! With a crowd double the size from the day before, we spoke with many, many more people who gave some amazing feedback and encouragement. The excitement in the eyes of those who came to talk with us was enough to keep us going through the night as we drove back home to DC.
Hopefully we will continue to be invited to the Windy City to participate in the great pro-life activities they always seem to have going on there.
Who we are?
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.
