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

well, as you can see, even if you are color blind, the layout of the blog has changed dramatically. for some reason i wearied of the old one, so i decided to make some alterations. if the comments ever come back on, let me know what you think of it.

i have tremendous news: i have, through the grace of God, on this feast day of Saints Peter and Paul, acquired a charcoal grill. the haitians make great charcoal, so i bought a huge bag and plan on grilling up some corn, yucca, and hot dogs tonight after dinner. a little ketchup, mayo, and hot sauce ought to make for some seriously fine dining. i only have one bag of gibbles hot potatoe chips left, but i've been saving them for an occasion such as this. i will wash it all down with a little presidente.

also, i got a new toilet seat, will install tomorrow - this place just gets better and better...

pray for this country - the whole country is going on strike tomorrow for one day - evidently they are mad about something and will spend the day rioting and causing general mayhem.
