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

today was father's day down here in the dominican republic. so, since we have a dearth of men attending Mass i wrote an invitation to all the fathers of pedro santanta and personally signed every one. we then had them delivered to all the houses. worked out pretty well. when Mass began the men and the women had segregated themselves to either side of the church. odd. anyway, it was good to see an extra 50 men attending Mass, so pray that they step up and continue coming...
