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

all gone.


it was great having the docs and nurses here, but it's good to have a little peace and quiet. i must confess, and i don't mean to be querulous, but after more than two months without a break, i think i have developed a slight case of trichotillomania. i'm champing at the bit for a little downtime with no one walking in to my office requesting water bottles, ketchup, and/or an eye removal.

the light is visible at the end of the tunnel, however, because i will, God Willing, be coming home for a little break in about a month!!!
