Walking to spread theology of the body

A group of college students dedicated to John Paul II's theology of the body is in the midst of a 1,300 mile walk down the East Coast. During the summer journey, they will be speaking to complete strangers -- at churches, in grocery stores, at youth groups and along busy (and not so busy) roads -- about the Catholic faith and the insights of John Paul II. To learn more about their journey, read their blog, which is updated as often as they are able, considering nights are often spent in church basements or with a host family.

Four years ago I was blessed to take part in a pro-life walk with a similar route in the Northeast. I know that the reason it was such an incredible experience was due to the prayers of so many people across the country. Please join in praying for the Missionaries of the Eucharist as they take the Gospel to the streets.
