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 just finished stations of the cross - my favorite devotion for sure - and i feel the penance of being in the dominican republic on the haitian border, for my 8 year tradition of going out for a mcfish and fries after spanish stations has ended...
