Summer 2007 Introductions

My name is Josh Guenther. This year I have been given the privilege of being the leader of the walk through the Northeast from Maine to D.C. I am totally excited to be able to share my summer with such an amazing group of people. It is such a grace to grow in love in our community and to take this out to all those we meet in the streets, in parishes and to families. This is a great opportunity for me to grow in holiness and to learn to become a better and more humble leader.

I am currently a music major at the University of Maryland, College Park and am between my junior and senior year. I am unsure about where God is calling me after I graduate but I hope that this summer will assist with my discernment.

Please pray for me and for all the Missionaries that we may follow the Lord's will and bring Christ to all those we encounter this summer. I am confident that it will be amazing!

Good luck leading, Josh! I know Christ will give you all the graces you need to carry out this aspect of his work in the world. :)

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.
