The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

i can't believe how much food two small pigs can consume in one day - these two little guys eat a tub of rice mash and 6-10 mangos. they actually climb into the tub with two feet to eat. we are fattening them up for a Christmas feast.

the stupid sat receiver is still non-funtional. the haitian has let me down once too often, so we are calling in a domincan, thus making the project truly multi-national. we'll see what happens.

i have the unfortunate duty to accompany the youth group to the beach this saturday for a retreat. there will be a young dominican priest there, so i will have to cast the fly rod and swim in the carribean. i offer these things up, so i suspect purgatory will be cleared soon...
