Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pray for us!
Here we are the first week of the walking at St John the Evagelist in St Johnsbury, VT. Being that we all love Our Lady of Guadalupe, we thought it would be great to take a family photo of us with her.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is very special to us because she is the patroness for the unborn and we believe in the diginity of all life from conception to natural death, from the womb to the tomb. In the image she is pregnant with the Christ-child and we ask her to every day to to pray for the mothers who are pregnant and are contempating an abortion.
Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Pray and protect the unborn!
Peace and joy!
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.
