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

wonder of wonders, the comments have reappeared, but apparently the fix is a temporary one. therefore, i have begun a quest for a different comment service. the last few days of commentless blogging has been a drag. the blog is a vacuum without the surly, sarcastic, banal, intelligent, insightful, and inspiring reflections of the hoi polloi.

i hope to have the situation remedied by late tonight.
