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

for those of you invigilating the situation down here on a regular basis, i would like to notify you of the following: i have 34 scheduled Masses in the next 16 days, so be prepared for a serious influx of grace, which should result in a copious efflux of charity on our parts...happy feast day of All Saints...

UPDATE: i just realized something - today marks my 6th month down here at the mission. can't believe it's been that long.
