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

in the last 24 hours i have: prayed, eaten, ridden a motorcyle, driven a truck, walked, run, fixed a water system, tested and repaired two dental chairs including the high and low speed drills, water, air, and suction, re-primed the generator, swept, mopped, lugged stuff, picked up trash, celebrated Mass, heard confessions, played cards, blogged, audio chatted over the internet, listened to music, read, played basketball, slept, exposed the Blessed Sacrament, helped the poor, met with presidential candidates, checked invertors, and consumed 4 dr peppers - that's variety.
