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

the countdown has almost terminated: i depart for Mass and 12 baptisms and then head off to the capital. then it's a big jet plane to the states. i will do my best to keep you posted on my exploits while "overseas".

blog update: i will have done a baptism, Mass, confession, and anointing by 11 am - that's a rocking way to leave...sure
