Precious Blood Monastery Room
This was one of the rooms we stayed at in the Precious Blood Monastery in Brooklyn NY. It was such a beautifully humble place to stay. Monsignor Phillip Reilly was extremely welcoming and a wonderful man to be around. His passion for the pro-life movement is inspiring and contagious. Little did I know that this bed would be the last bed I slept in for a few days.
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.
