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

is it really friday already? the feast of St. Joseph, patron of pedro santana? has the bishop already been here to say Mass? did i eat meat today? did the kids from christendom arrive safely? did the suny folk actually get a chapel painted and pewed and another two started? is that a bowl of okra from my garden? is my pig pregnant?
