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 found eden today - or the closest thing to it - i went out to the mountains for the brand new "regularly scheduled" Masses on sunday. it was just perfect - the views, the weather, everything. well, except for the fact that my gear box blew out again and we had to ride triple with two backpacks, but why waste a perfect morning with that kind of talk...
