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

some mouth-watering quotes from the latests discussion on odette:

"The last flight into Odette had to be truncated due to intense lightning and severe turbulence."

"There is much better convergence and agreement among the models this morning on a track across western to central Dominican Republic in about 12 hours."

"The GFDL makes Odette a 74 kt hurricane just prior to landfall."

"The high terrain (that's us!) of Hispaniola should quickly weaken Odette."

The greatest threat from Odette is expected to be heavy rainfall over Hispaniola and Puerto Rico that could cause potentially deadly flash floods and mud slides."

i'll keep you informed - the weather station is fully functional and on alert!
