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

i no longer have the neither the stamina nor the eardrums for rock and roll concerts - as many of you know, i received the gift of attending the counting crows / john mayer concert last night here in hartford. the interior cranial pounding is finally subsiding. a quick review: the counting crows played with a decent intensity for 1.5 hours - the simple fact of the matter is that they are a great band.

john mayer, a connecticut local boy, then came on and jammed for just an hour, but jam he did. that guy can flat-out play the guitar. i sat down in silent protest during "your body is a wonderland," but other than that the whole show was morally sound, for which i was grateful.

i ought to have an interesting fishing report in the morning if God Wills...
