Connecticut

So today is July 16th and soon we'll be in NYC! We are in Bridgeport, CT today and heading west. It has been very hot and with only four walkers we are starting to feel every mile. But this weekend we'll be seeing some familiar faces and we'll be more than doubling our number of walkers! It will be nice to be able to have more than two people walk at a time.

I am sure we'll have tons of exciting things to report after The NYC weekend, but for now I'll just chat about recent events. We divided our time these weekend between the Andrew's house and a Spanish church in Hartford. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew (the parents of fellow MoE Elizabeth Andrew) let us swim in their pool and eat a lot of their food. We celebrated my birthday in style (i.e., with brownie sundaes and toy dinosaurs) and we heard some very funny tales from Elizabeth (who was visiting her parents).

Our last two nights were spent with the Dominicans of New Haven. Right in the midst of Yale University, these Dominicans are surrounded by majestic ivy league buildings. Ron, their chef, entertained us with witty banter and delicious foods.

I should get wrap this up, though... I have to start walking again in about 20 minutes.

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.
