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

i have baptized 58 people so far this week. today i baptized all the people below - that's correct, everyone in the picture below, adults, teens, kids, toddlers, and babies (except for the angry looking woman in the red shirt, she jumped into the picture because she thought the kid she was holding was left out...). i don't know how these saints baptized so many people and got the paperwork done, it's a real big hassle when no one can write...
