Birth of John the Baptist
This great gift to the world of John is a testament that God wanted to prepare the world for the coming of Christ, just as He had prepared the body of Mary through her Immaculate Conception. This is such a great gift to the world that it too shared the great grace of the coming of Christ. In a sense, the people of God got to prepare for the coming of Christ.
We too should prepare for the coming of Christ into our own lives when we receive Holy Communion. Let's follow the example of John and prepare ourselves and the world for Christ's great of Himself.
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.
