The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage taking place from coast to coast will converge on Indianapolis for the National Eucharistic Congress (July 17-21). Having passed the halfway point, we wanted to catch up with Zoe Dongas, a Perpetual Pilgrim on the Seton Route, to get an update from the road.

She talks with us about the blessings and challenges of the 60-day pilgrimage from New Haven, Connecticut, to Indianapolis. She invites everyone to, “Come and see what Jesus is doing in this country…come to Indianapolis. Jesus Christ is here, and he wants to be with you.”

See the full interview in the video above.

Father Schmitz offered his wisdom on a number of topics -- especially evangelization and the importance of Eucharist.

Today’s short, familiar Gospel is striking to read on the feast day of a man like St. Camillus.
