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

okay people, i'm back to blogging, the two-week sabbatical is over and i find myself highly motivated to blog out - heck, maybe i'll assign myself the penance of blogging every day during Lent...

i finally feel compelled to ask the question: why the disparate amount of handicapped and crippled people?? i mean, you can walk in the states for a week and not see anyone, but here they abound. perhaps america hides them? perhaps america cures them? who knows, but it struck me as odd the other day and i was just wondering aloud (well, textually anyway) about it.
