One last time
"Irregardless," we're ready to walk these last six miles. Over the last few nights we've stayed with Cookie Harris, Josh's parents, and now with the Mackins.
I'd write more, but I need to grab some breakfast for the last leg... and you, doubtless, need to get to the store to buy me lavish presents. It has been a long and fruitful summer... and as tired as we are, it is sad that it is coming to an end.
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.
