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

up at 4:30 am, Mass at 5:30 am, 2 hour ride to take the youth group for a spiritual talk and beach trip. arrive barahona 11:00 am, depart 1:00, leaving the kids in the hands of the driver of the bus so i can make it back home for Mass and 18 baptisms. that's all i can muster at the moment. good night.
