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

fresh look on the blog!!!

thanks for all the prayers - i had a great retreat and am 20 hours from departure - i need to get back home and evaluate the damage due to the floods: as far as i can tell from reports that i have received, the local banica area has not suffered from flooding, but so other areas about 45 minutes away have, so i'll have a full report in a couple of days, well, at least i hope i will, as i have received a missive lamenting the lack of internet at a parish...
