Peace and Joy to you all! After 6 weeks of blisters, walking, rain and laughes we finished the walk on August 8, the Feast Day of St Dominic. Thank you all for your prayer and support. Stay tuned to read more about our crazy adventures and some reflections of the summer.
Praise God for His Love and Mercy and for our beautiful Lady who guides out heart into the Love of God. Praise God for all those who helped found the Missionaries of the Eucharist, without your desire to serve the Lord we would not have had such a great summer. Praise God for St Thomas Aqunias, St Therese of Lisieux and St Joseph, for your patronage and prayer from above. Praise God for Servant of God Pope John Paul II, for showing us such a great love for God and His Love for us, body and soul.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
we Love you.

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,
hmmm... something about this picture just makes me smile. Maybe its Scooter's lovely face or the cozy-ness of the Sao van or the fact that this is when we were able to reunite with our Dominican brothers... anyway i just love it, yay for MoE's!
in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
After another long day on the road, the Missionaries of the Eucharist returned to the Andrew's house for dinner. On this glorious evening the Andrews barbequed hotdogs and hamburgers for the ravenous missionaries. Halfway through the dinner Missionary Renato L. Esposito II, was inspired to embark on a culinary endeavor. He reached to his left and acquired some spicy brown mustard. He then applied it to create some text on the hotdog. The world of Barbecue changed forever.
Saint Lawrence- The patron Saint of Barbecue, pray for us.
After a long hot day on the road, Scott Wilkins and Renato L. Esposito II are preparing
to take part in the 2009 Missionaries of the Eucharist Swim-Off. As you can see in this
photo, on the left , Scott is sporting his brand new swimming goggles along with his retro teenage mutant ninja turtles towel. On the right, Renato is sporting the peach swimming goggles and retro summer design towel. These two men are destined for swimming greatness. I salute these two aquatic worriers, looks likes we may have 2012 Olympic future gold medalists in our midst. Swim strong you Sultans of swim, Paddlers of power, Backstroke berserkers, Dukes of the dive.
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.
