"This is another theologian!"

So, apparently Dr Alice von Hildebrand summers in Keene, New Hampshire.

As we were walking across the parking lot this morning on the way to Mass, a woman called out to us. "Are you all the theologians that are walking?"

"I suppose you could say that."

"Well, this is another theologian!"

The woman, whose name we failed to acquire, thereafter introduced us to none other than Dr Alice von Hildebrand, famous German philosopher. Her husband was the late Dietrich von Hildebrand. We love chance meetings. Hui!

Emily, it's been a long time since you've written on your blog (a little over a year). Maybe you should take up where you left off with your new job and such,

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.
