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

as i sit here with no electricity and gaze upon the glorious weather God has decided to provide you up in the northeast, i can't help but marvel at the post-season tropical storm (see odette) predicted to cross directly over us...
