Corpus Christi!

Happy Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus!

Erin Dunne, Nick Lensing, Molly Lillis, Meghan Sabo, Caroline Savoie and myself (we will post bio videos when we have access to the internet on our computer!) arrived this evening in Lewiston, Maine to begin our walk tomorrow morning. We had a week of blessings and opportunities to grow in knowledge of our Catholic Faith, community life, and eachother.

I should get some rest before our first day of walking tomorrow morning; but rest assured of plenty of posts when we aquire better internet.

Please keep us and all of the people we will meet in your prayers!

United through the Eucharist,

Here is an interesting entry on Corpus Christi, its history and spiritual meaning offering a broad perspective on various traditions and forms of piety. Certainly worth checking out: http://dstp.cba.pl/?p=1939

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.
