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

happy feast of the Epiphany!! that's correct, we actually celebrate it on the 6th of january...listen folks, we have a huge 12 days here at the mission: tonight a sea-can arrives, tomorrow the bishop arrives and we take off for the mountains, followed by 10 days of meetings and Masses. a nice 10 day pastoral visit. i'll be offline from wednesday-friday, but the antics in the mountains should provide some worthwhile photos and stories...
