My friend Juan

I met Juan while walking through Jamaica Plains, MA south of Boston. He was blown away by the beauty of the Rosary, and promised me he would pray one every night before he went to bed if I prayed one every night before I go to bed. We talked for 45 minutes about life, the Church and Mary. I think about my new faithful friend everyday and I can't wait to meet at the gates of heaven.

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.
