a cross to bear
In general, I enjoy silence and solitude. i was afraid that the hardest part of community life would be that I'd have no time to myself. As it turns out, the hardest part is being away from the group. since I'm on media duty, I spend a lot of time in the car driving from town to town contacting different media outlets, trying to get the word out. I'm blessed with a different partner each day, so it's not that I'm completely isolated. That's all.
On the plus side, we have been getting a bit of good media (e.g., an hour-long interview on the radio last week). Pray that we continue to see the fruits of this particular work.
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.
