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

a close monitoring of the poll reveals that the once front running "more audblogs" has taken a back seat to "more pictures" - stan claims it's a broadband/dial-up issue, however one woman pointed out that "chicks dig the audioblog, that's why it's winning." whatever the case may be, we will leave it for a few more days to see if "full-motion video" can make a run for the title.

embracing my role as pastor of souls does have it challenges as you all know - e.g. i am once again forced to accompany someone to the beach for the day and even spend the night. please don't pity me, just pray i accept the grace to bear the burden of this cross with joy...hope you people in northern va and evirons above see temperatures of greater than 59 today...
