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 want to take this opportunity to wish everyone who regularly reads this drivel a happy Pentacost...the end of another Easter season - we celebrated an exhuberant Mass this evening - i chanted the sequence, which threw off the folks a bit - and said the Roman Canon - although i was sweating like cold beer on a warm night before it was all said and done.

in other news, my pigs almost killed each other last night when they got their ropes all tangled up, but they are okay and we fixed the problem...
