The MoE-est Chapter in the New Testament

On the eve of their entrance to the postulancy of the Eastern Province Dominican friars, Michael Dickie and Jeff Reese each gave the walkers a talk on a topic of their own choosing. Here Michael speaks about John 6 and the Eucharist. The talk is presented in two parts.
Please pray for these young men and their classmates - for their continued discernment and formation, and that they may receive the religious names they have written in their hearts when they enter novitiate on August 8th, the Feast of St. Dominic.

I'm proud of Michael, who soon will be named...?

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.
