One last time

It is the morning of the last day. I just read Mark's post and, from the sound of it, you'd think that HE was the one who'd been taking codeine. But alas, that is not true. I had to go onto my emergency meds. Although I did not mention it before, I lost my filling (again) on the morning we saw Sr Lauren and, since then, have been coping with a random hole in my tooth. Last night it decided to hurt. Maybe it could sense our proximity to the end.

"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?

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.
