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

sacramental statistics for today:

Masses: 2 totalling 3 hours

Confessions: who knows how many totalling 3 hours

Marriages: 2

Confirmations: 8

Anointing: 1

that's right, a 5 sacrament day. i'm bushed - that doesn't include all the driving and the meetings. at least i only have 2.5 days til the schedule reverts to semi-normal with the departure of the bishop...
