Jeffrey Matilda Reese

We miss you!!!

This picture of Caroline, Jeff, Martha and me was taken on Jeff and Michael's last day with the MoE's at St. Monica's Parish. On their last night, they gave us talks on True Devotion to the Holy Spirit and The Eucharist. Being able to witness our two brothers "in preacher mode" helped us realize (even though we knew already) their vocations to the Holy Priesthood.
I think this picture sums up our relationship with Jeff quite well. Scare-oline, Miss Martha and I going crazy laughing at Jeff. Whether he was picking us ladies flowers along the walk, talking about the Faith, making fun of Dave Sao, or punching people in the neck, he always had the ability to make someone smile no matter what we were going through on the walk.

We miss being able to spend time with you along with your great sense of humor, but we look forward to spending that time with you in the Eucharist.

Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit...
Make Us Saints! :)

United through the Eucharist,

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.
