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

as i sweated under this tarp preparing for a funeral Mass this truck:

decides to back in and start unloading water. i just looked at these guys as the people that had gathered for Mass had been cleared out. so there i stood, sweating my tail off, watching these guys spill water all over the place. i finally just told them to stop and let us get on with the business at hand. so i yelled told people to get organized. there must have been 80 people jammed under this blue tarp while people around the area ate, drank, played dominoes, cooked, and laughed. at least marcos, r.i.p., got a Mass said for him...
