As we were walking through Rhode Island, we were able to visit our Dominican walkers! These beautiful statues are placed within the beautiful campus of Providence College. Here is St. Dominic receiving the gift of the Rosary from Our Lady. He never stopped preaching of the importance and value of the Rosary. Our Lady would often appear to St. Dominic and inspire him to keep on spreading Her Psalter to convert hearts.
St. Dominic, Pray for us!
Our Lady of the Rosary, Pray for us!
United through the Eucharist,
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.
