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

man, i'm cold. what the heck. it must be in the low 60's here, which is cold after 87-90 yesterday. oh well. it will probably snow in october.

i've got a big morning planned: since i said Mass last night in pedro santanta and am saying the evening Mass here in banica (there are no sunday morning Masses because everyone goes to the public market and skips Mass) i am h eading out to this little mountain i saw yesterday to check out some rock climbing possibilities. it looked very promising from the road. also, there is a potential landing/takeoff area i need to check out.

other than that, things are good, it looks like i have a full month ahead of me, since i will say Mass in every zone around here and in the mountains. by the end of may i will have visited everyone in the parish.
