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 was over at this house the other day and saw these little goats:

i asked how old they were and the owner said, "they were born about 12 hours ago." i couldn't believe it. it was hilarious watching these two try to walk, fall down, get back up, try again, trip, stumble, smash a chin on the step, yelp, try again. it went on and on. evidently goats can give birth once a year with a litter of two to three kids. that's it for saturday morning nature hour here at the mission.

i'll be in a parish council meeting for the next 26 hours. what more needs to be said than your prayers will be useful...
