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 Ash Wednesday: the morning dawned with patricio, our night watchman, crying out at about 0540 that he was having a heart attack. so, we put him in a truck and fr jack dropped him at the hospital on his way to Mass in pedro santana.

by the way, the ashes here are white, not black. must be a contrast thing.

may your lenten season be filled with grace.
