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

what makes a missionary priest joyful, aside from the obvious spiritual joys, like the four Triumph of the Cross Masses he celebrated? watching the redskins win at 2 frames per second over yahoo video chat over a wireless intranet with a small webcam locked onto a television on the other side and hearing audio through ichat a/v all done over a satellite connection which is being powered by a battery bank and invertor.
