This picture was taken on the top of Mount Equinox, which is located in Arlington Vermont. In this photo you can see what looks like a building complex. This is actually a Carthusian Monastery called the Charterhouse of the Transfiguration. I later found out that this monastery was the first Carthusian Monastery located in the western hemisphere. The monastery is surrounded with beautiful rolling hills and green woods; this is a perfect location for a contemplative monastery. I would like to thank Brain and everyone at the Carthusian monastery Gift Shop for letting us go up the mountain.

May God Bless you.

St Bruno Pray For us.

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.
