A little more about PJMY
So, we're now in Manchester, NH, and the priests here have been so amazing. We had a great week of walking, and a very fruitful time for growth, both as a community and individually. I have two blog entries from the 10th and 12th saved on a laptop that was donated to us by "the Anne" (pray for her to conceive twins being that she recently was married). But, that is four flights of stairs and a key away right now, so I figured that at least for the time being, I'd put something up.
Just for a little more info, in the last blog posting, I forgot to put that I'd like to become a Dominican. I just graduated from college, and I'd like to enter the Dominicans of the St. Joseph (Eastern United States) Province. So please pray for my vocation.
I also mentioned Rome, in the conversion comment. Well, last summer, I was blessed to be able to travel to Rome before World Youth Day. Stunning! Totally, just a different world. If you've never been, it is probably one of the best possible things that you can do for soul (aside from going to Mass of course). Well, last weekend, we also went to Montreal for a pilgrimage, and the Cathedral of Mary Queen of the World there is modelled after St. Peter's in Rome. They did a great job of down-scaling it, but it doesn't compare to St. Peter's.
Anyway, that's just a little more about me, and the other two postings I wrote last week should be up soon.
Blessed Jordan of Saxony...pray for us
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.
