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

seismic events headline this morning's blog news: that's right folks - at about 1:00 am i awoke rattling around in my bed and thought to myself, "boy this sure feels like and earthquake, but i'm in the dominican republic, it can't be." after a good 20 seconds it stopped and i went back to sleep. this morning the staff inundated me with questions about it.

for those so inclined: the quake registered 6.5 - that's right - 6.5. the hypocenter was exactly 83.7 miles from banica. for more info check this page out.
